Reporting a Concern

We are committed to providing you with a safe, healthy, secure and respectful environment while you are at Sunnybrook. If you have a concern during your placement, please follow the steps below so we can help you as effectively as possible. If you are uncomfortable speaking to the individuals suggested at any point during the escalation process, please feel free to contact any of us.

STEP 1: Speak with your preceptor or supervisor

If you are comfortable, we encourage you to address the concern with the person you are working with on a daily basis.

STEP 2: Speak with your area or professional lead

If the concern is not addressed at Step 1, please feel free to speak with your area or professional lead. This may include your site director, patient care manager, professional and education leader, advanced practice nurse or clinical coordinator.

STEP 3: Speak with a member of the Student Centre leadership team

If your concern has not been addressed to your satisfaction in Step 1 and/or Step 2, speak with a member of our Student Centre leadership team, such as the Director of Interprofessional & Academic Education, Director of the Peters-Boyd Academy, Manager of Post-Graduate Medical Education and Education Observers, or the Education Lead for Nursing.

STEP 4: Speak with the Vice-President of Education

If you feel the need to address your concern at the senior-leadership level, please feel free to connect with the Vice-President of Education, Dr. Ari Zaretsky.
