Ethical Behavior and Honorable Conduct

Only the highest ethical and moral behavior should be evidenced by physicians and physician assistants. Behavior which is not of this caliber reflects poorly on the profession. Every student should aspire to the highest ethical standards daily. In the event there is an incident in which a student's integrity is questioned and is found lacking (such as breach of the dishonesty policy or patient confidentiality), the student will be re-evaluated for suitability in the PA profession and may be dismissed from the program.
