|The students at the University of Alabama School of Medicine (UASOM) have devised an Honor System so they may be held to the same high standards of accountability in the confines of their training that they will be expected to meet in practice.
Students are expected to avoid any sort of academic or professional misconduct. They are expected to demonstrate respect for the rights and well being of
others, including students, faculty, staff, patients, and members of the
community. In addition, all members of the UASOM community are obligated to
take positive action to ensure that the failure of others to comply with these
standards is not permitted. All students will refer to the UASOM website for a copy of the UASOM Honor
Code, and will sign a summary statement, a copy of
which is maintained in the file of each student.
Formal action, when necessary, will be taken in accordance with the Honor Code.
