Student Committee for Academic Integrity and Professionalism
STUDENT ETHICAL PLEDGE
I acknowledge and accept the privileges and responsibilities given to me today as a physician in training and dedicate myself to provide care to those in need.
I will approach all aspects of my education with honesty and integrity,
embracing opportunities to learn from patients, teachers and colleagues.
I will value the knowledge and wisdom of the physicians who have preceded
I will respect the humanity, rights and decisions of all patients and will
attend to them with compassion and without bias.
Even as a student I have a responsibility to improve the standard of health in my community, to increase access to care for the underserved and to advance medical knowledge.
As I accept these new responsibilities, I will not forget the importance of
my own health and well-being.
Knowing my own limitations and those of medicine, I commit myself to a lifelong journey of learning how to cure, relieve and comfort with humility and compassion.
I make these promises solemnly, freely, and upon my honor.
