Would you red flag an applicant who has been seen breaking COVID etiquette?

Recommended Posts

Some schools have a red-flag system where faculty, residents, med students - whoever is part of the application process - can add a note to the file of a med school applicant for egregious past behaviour or falsifying information. Of course this should be taken with discretion and is not a perfect system etc.

Relevant to covid, if you saw evidence (e.g. instagram posts or seeing in person) of an undergrad applying to med school who was less compliant with covid protocol - would you raise a red flag? Where would you draw the line if so? e.g. from hosting a large indoor house party vs. joining a large indoor house party vs. going to a nighclub maskless with 50+ people indoors

If you're a clerk and therefore seeing patients, and you still decide to engage in the behaviors you describe (parties, etc.), you totally should get red flagged. Clear lack of judgement and professionalism.

When it comes to behaviors that are allowed under current rules (ie: going to a restaurant, seeing a couple of friends, etc.), I think that's fine.
