The CU Anschutz Office of Professional Excellence (OPE) provides a private resource to obtain a fair and equitable process and resolution for all matters pertaining to professionalism concerns regarding residents, fellows, staff members, and faculty in any school or college on the Anschutz Medical Campus.

The primary goal is to help those who have been involved in an incident to return to being valued and productive members of the Anschutz Medical Campus community. It is NOT to provide discipline or to be punitive, but rather to help work through those things which will most benefit a full and realistic recovery from difficult situations.​

To provide a safe environment for reporting a lapse in professionalism, there are a variety of ways to contact the OPE:


While the OPE will take all measures to ensure the privacy of information, complete confidentiality cannot be guaranteed.
