EDI Complaints and Reports

Procedure for making a Complaint or Report

A Complaint or Report is a written statement submitted to the SMA regarding a personal experience of racism, discrimination, harassment, and/or reprisal. SMA members who write and submit a Complaint or Report agree to be contacted by an EDI team member who will ask questions to better understand what happened.

Complaint or Report forms can be submitted by physicians, residents, and medical students ONLY. We will not respond to complaints from the public.

To make a Complaint or Report:

  • Complete the complaint form and submit to the SMA.
  • The Physician Health Program team will meet to review the complaint and decide if it will be referred for investigation.
  • The SMA Physician Lead, EDI will reach out to explain the team’s decision and explain next steps.
