Institutional Compliance and Integrity
Compliance at the Health Science Center is a matter of fairness, guidance, confidentiality, accountability, ethics, and protection. Adherence to compliance is an opportunity for each health science center employee to make a meaningful contribution to the ongoing success of the institution.
- The Compliance Program at UNT Health Science Center ensures that all personnel conduct their business, research, educational and service activities with complete adherence to all statutory requirements and at the highest levels of ethical behavior.
- The Program is designed to enhance employee, student, business associate and patient/client awareness of the expectation of ethical behavior, and to facilitate the reporting of suspected breaches of conduct or noncompliance.
- This site is to help members of the UNT Health Science Center community familiarize themselves with policy and procedures relevant to ethical conduct of the activities at the health science center. It also provides specific guidelines for reporting a suspected compliance violation.
