Committee on Professionalism in Healthcare (COPHE).

The Committee on Professionalism in Healthcare (COPHE) was launched in July 2021 to promote professionalism across Mount Sinai. Mount Sinai collaborates with the Center for Patient and Professional Advocacy at Vanderbilt University Medical Center to implement this program.

The COPHE program uses a data-driven approach to provide feedback on unprofessional behaviors by faculty, trainees and students.  This program fosters a healthy and inclusive research environment where all staff, trainees and students feel comfortable speaking up because they know that their concerns are heard and acted upon. All members of the Mount Sinai community are encouraged to report unprofessional behaviors. Reports can be made confidentially by someone experiencing mistreatment, or by a witness of mistreatment to someone else, via one of the portals below:

  2. Request is approved by any or all of the following: · Fund Owner (depending upon fund policies) · Department (depending upon departmental policies) · Dean’s Office (for foreign travel) · Finance (depending upon policies)

Once the Travel Request is approved, Finance Department issues checks for any prepayments and advances – students, residents and fellows are allowed an advance while processing a travel request, option is available there.  If the Traveler is submitting the Travel Request only to be covered by Mount Sinai’s travel insurance, the request goes through the approvals and no subsequent voucher is necessary.
