For the SHP Honor Code, click here.

As espoused in the Faculty/Student Honor Code of SHP, it is essential for all faculty and students to observe high standards of honesty and integrity in all aspects of education, practice and research.

All faculty and students should be familiar with our Honor Code and embrace its principles in theory and practice. Abiding to these standards is the hallmark of a true professional.

Integrity at SHP

We invite all programs to share activities they use to incorporate the Honor Code into the development of their students. Some examples are listed below.

PA Class of 2013

Student signing the honor code

SHP Physician Assistant Class of 2013 “Integrity Pledge Ceremony”

Each year, the PA program’s incoming classes participate in group discussions, hold small group sessions and discuss hypothetical scenarios related to academic integrity. When the sessions are concluded, the students all return to a central location where they are asked to sign a blown-up poster version of the PA program honor code.

The signed “poster” and picture are then framed and hung in a prominent location near the student mailboxes where it can be readily seen as a reminder of their pledge to help maintain an environment of strict academic integrity and to uphold the Rutgers/SHP honor code at all times.
