Consumer Information

The Morehouse School of Medicine (MSM) desires to resolve student grievances, complaints and concerns in an expeditious, fair and amicable manner. Complaints regarding any aspect of operations should be filed internally to MSM authorities first, and then, if necessary, to external authorities. Contact information for filing complaints is given below.

MSM fully complies with the federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 as amended (20 U.S.C. § 1232g; 34 CFR Part 99), which gives students access to their educational records. Individuals who have particular questions or wish to view a copy of the Act are urged to contact the Office of the Registrar or the Dean’s Office. Students can arrange to review their records by making an appointment with the Registrar located on the first floor of the Hugh Gloster Building, adjacent to the Office of Admissions and Student Affairs.

Federal regulations also require MSM to provide prospective and current students with contact information for filing complaints with the appropriate agency in the state where the student resides. The following links fulfill this obligation:

Because MSM is eager to listen to its students and assist them in resolving any issues they may have with the school, MSM encourages students to inform the school of their complaints first before contacting one of these agencies.
