Code of Conduct

The Brody School of Medicine is committed to conducting all aspects of its operations in an ethical and law-abiding fashion. We are intolerant of fraud, abuse, waste, or other violations of any applicable federal, state, or local laws and regulations. The Brody School of Medicine has implemented a Code of Conduct that provides guiding standards for our decisions and actions as members of the School of Medicine community (faculty, staff, residents, students, trainees, and contracted employees). Although the Code can neither cover every situation in the daily conduct of our activities nor substitute for individual judgment or personal integrity, it is the duty of each member of our community to adhere, without exception, to the principles set forth in the BSOM Code of Conduct.
