The Bullying Culture of Medical School

The Bullying Culture of Medical School

They had a talk on this for us a while back. They were like bullying is wrong, and if you feel bullied, you can report it. Remember, though, that if you report it, your school can lose accreditation, and that’s the last thing you want. Also remember that you will not remain anonymous, because we will have to get everyone’s side of the story. In addition, what you perceive as bullying may not actually be bullying. You may just be more sensitive than others. She kept calling it “student’s perception of bullying/abuse” rather than just saying bullying/abuse. The whole talk left our class feeling worse about what was to come than when the talk started. They told us to develop a thick skin. -__-
