Honor Code

As a community of scholars and future physicians, the honor code carries with it a responsibility to mutually assure the integrity of the community. This reflects the obligation of licensed physicians to maintain the ethics of the profession.

It is expected that each student will make a personal commitment to abide by the UMass Chan Medical School Honor Code, which includes both self-monitoring and reporting violations. 

The Honor Code applies to all students at the T.H. Chan School of Medicine. All students who are enrolled in a degree-granting program from the T.H. Chan School of Medicine will be held to the Honor Code until they receive their final degree(s). The Honor Board consists of faculty and students with a chair named by the dean.  
Consequences of violations may include self-assessment and remediation; others may require course repeat, service work or even dismissal. Categories of violations are tiered and cumulative.
