1/This article highlights an urgent need for training faculty and administrators on issues related to gender violence and discrimination in #meded. We have five concerns with the article. #metoo #meded #womeninmedicine #sheforshe #heforshe @caroline_a_king @womeninmedchat
2/ Title IX. This article is missing information about federally mandated reporting processes and protections that legally protect medical students (and all students in the U.S.).
3/Anecdotal beliefs perpetuate harms. A physician expert states “the trainee must amass allies before lodging this complaint…” This is legally incorrect, a single report is enough to trigger Title IX and this reinforces the notion that single reports will not be believed.
4/Confidential advocates. The article briefly mentions the need for multiple reporting mechanisms but does not describe these services. Because of Title IX institutions should include an alternative 24-7 access to confidential advocate services.
5/Non-expert statements. This article relied on non-expert-based opinions on the protections and issues-related gender violence experienced by medical students. Title IX coordinators, trauma experts, and confidential advocates should be included in these discussions.
6/ Cover image. The article thumbnail image depicts a man holding a woman’s hand; based on the content of the article, we assume this is without her consent. If so, this is assault and not harassment, this is misleading and challenges students’ understanding of definitions.
7/The AMA is a powerful leader in medicine that has the potential to support, catalyze, and sustain culture change around #metoo in #meded. We are hopeful that the AMA will take and lead informed action to improve the culture of #meded. #womeninmedicine #sheforshe #heforshe
