Institutional and system-wide policies are under development.

At present, the default policy of the Morningside Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences is to permit use of generative AI with attribution.  Attribution includes documentation of the AI source, a statement declaring how it was used, and a list of prompts used.

Course directors set policy for their courses and are required to clearly state their AI policy in the syllabus.  If AI is prohibited for specific assignments or course activities, course directors are responsible for equitably enforcing the policy, including a statement in the syllabus describing how compliance will be monitored and any penalties for violation.

Faculty and Student Vendor Relations Conflict of Interest Policy

Read Faculty and Student Vendor Relations Conflict of Interest Policy

This policy seeks to prevent conflicts of interest between commercial Vendors doing business with the UMass Chan Medical School and UMass Chan's Faculty Members, and Students. Such potential conflicts can be viewed as influencing patient care and/or purchasing/procurement. This policy, working in tandem with the Commonwealth of Massachusetts’ Ethics Laws (M.G.L. c. 268A), strives to ensure that relationships between the UMass Chan Faculty Members or Students and commercial Vendor representatives enhance the University’s mission as a center of excellence for teaching and research. 

This policy recognizes that some UMass Chan Faculty Members provide patient care and/or conduct research in various hospitals, outpatient settings, and research centers that may have their own policies governing Vendor relations and conflicts of interest. Such policies may vary from this policy. When two or more policies govern the relationships of UMass Chan faculty members with commercial vendors, the faculty member must comply with all restrictions. Each faculty member must identify and adhere to the applicable policies.
