Audit and Compliance Office
The mission of the Audit and Compliance Office is to establish a compliance program to ensure that all workforce members, including faculty, staff, students, volunteers, and others, are aware of and comply with Medical Center policies, our code of conduct, and federal and state laws and regulations.
The Compliance Program promotes the highest standards of ethics, honesty, and integrity in pursuit of the Medical Center's Vision of balanced excellence in patient care, research, and education. Ethical behavior is so much more than simply following the rules. It means doing the right thing, for the right reason, even when no one is looking.
