The Office of Institutional Integrity has adopted a University wide Compliance Program. This program provides a framework for the University’s compliance with applicable healthcare state and federal laws and regulations in areas including but not limited to billing and reimbursement, the Federal Anti-kickback Statute, the Prohibition on Physician Self-Referrals (the Stark law), and clinical billing research.
The Compliance Program is not intended to set forth every program and practice that is designed to effect compliance, but rather to provide a framework that will guide the overall compliance effort of the University. The Compliance Program has been developed to incorporate the seven required elements of an effective compliance program as described by the Office of Inspector General in its compliance guidance for physician group practices.
The Compliance Program affects all areas of the University’s operations, and all faculty, staff, and contractors of the University are expected to participate in the program and abide by its requirements.
Codes of Conduct

ECU Division of Health Sciences
The Division’s employee Code of Conduct affirms DHS employees’ commitment to doing what is ethically right and should serve as a guide in upholding this commitment. Each employee is expected to know, understand, and abide by the guidelines outlined in the Code of Conduct, and by doing so, ensure that employees across the Division continue to provide the highest levels of compassionate and quality healthcare while complying with all applicable laws, regulations, and policies.
ECU Brody School of Medicine
In addition, the Brody School of Medicine community members (faculty, staff, learners, consultants, certain vendors, contracted physicians, etc.) are guided by BSOM’s Code that provides guidelines and standards for decisions and actions in the School. Although the Code can neither cover every situation in the daily conduct of many varied activities nor substitute for common sense, individual judgment, or personal integrity, it is the duty of each member of the BSOM community to adhere, without exception, to the principles set forth in the Code.
