Conflict of Interest

It is the policy of The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center Programs in the School of Health Professions to ensure that students do not engage in any business transaction or professional activity, or incur any obligation, financial or otherwise, that is in conflict with the proper discharge of their duties.

Students are prohibited from:

  • Accepting or soliciting any gifts, favor, service or benefits that might reasonably tend to influence the student in his/her performance.

  • Accepting outside employment or engaging in a business or professional activity that might require or induce the student to disclose confidential information.

  • Accepting outside employment or compensation that could impair the student's independence of judgment in the performance of his/her clinical and/or didactic responsibilities.
