Student Agreements, Consents, and Releases

Student Agreements

All medical students must enter into an agreement with Emory University and the Emory School of Medicine to follow all policies and regulations and to abide by the standards of the Conduct Code and Honor Code. All policies and regulations included in these agreements can be found in the Student Handbook.

Students must also agree to use the systems and software required by the school for evaluation and communication.

All student agreements will be signed upon matriculation and each subsequent year of enrollment.

Student Consents and Releases

Students must release certain information, including specific protected health information (PHI), to the Emory School of Medicine and allow the School of Medicine to provide this information to Emory facilities and to any outside institution that requests verification of immunization status prior to participation in any required, elective or voluntary clinical experience related to medical training at Emory School of Medicine.

Students must allow the Emory School of Medicine to release information to other departments of the University, such as Student Health Services and the Office of Financial Aid, in order to verify or certify services, scholarship eligibility, or other items necessary for the continuation of enrollment and to meet all state and federal health and safety requirements.

Because passing USMLE licensing exams is a requirement for promotion and graduation from EUSOM, students must agree to release their USMLE Step 1, Step 2 Clinical Knowledge and Step 2 Clinical Skills exam scores and results to the Emory School of Medicine.

All students must also give their consent to be photographed and recorded. Many of the clinical and professional skills assessments require that faculty and students view recordings of their assessments together.

If a student should refuse to provide or revoke any of these consents or releases, the student should understand that such action might affect the student’s ability to meet the requirements for the degree and eligibility to graduate and participate in the national residency match.

These consents and releases must be provided by the student upon matriculation and will remain in effect throughout the student’s enrollment or until such time as consent is revoked, in writing, by the student.
