All students of the School of Medicine must enter into an agreement with the School of Medicine to follow all school and University policies regarding Professionalism, Conflict of Interest, Discriminatory Harassment, Alcohol Abuse, and Sexual Assault and to abide by the standards of the Conduct Code and the Honor Code. All policies included in these agreements can be found in the Student Handbook under the "Overview/Policies & Regulations" and "Academics/Professionalism" sections.
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.
Students must release certain information, including protected health information (PHI), to the School of Medicine and allow the School of Medicine to provide this information to clinical offices and agencies of the Association of American Medical College, such as the Visiting Student Application Service (VSAS) and the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS), as required for the completion of academic and clinical requirements for the degree program and application to residency and clinical service outside the Emory system. Students must also allow the 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.
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 may 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.
