The Code of Conduct is the foundation for our ethical commitment to UCLA Health Sciences. We believe in building trust with our patients, scientists, students, trainees, and educators within and beyond our community. Whether you are a clinician, researcher, resident, teacher, student, workforce member, or volunteer your actions matter.
UCLA Health Sciences, as an academic health system, is a dynamic place of innovation and discovery, and is complex and highly regulated. This can create challenges in your everyday decision making. The Code of Conduct outlines policies, expectations and resources to help you navigate these nuances. Upholding our mission, vision and values is our shared responsibility.
Our Mission is to deliver leading-edge patient care, research, and education.
Our Vision is to heal humankind, one patient at a time, by improving health, alleviating suffering, and delivering acts of kindness.
Our Values ensure Integrity, Compassion, Respect, Teamwork, Excellence and Discovery in the work we do daily.
Together, we make up a team that’s leading the way in patient care, research, education, and community building.
As members of the UCLA Health community, each of us is accountable for the principles outlined in the Code of Conduct. The standards established in the Code are intended to guide our decision-making in service of our mission, vision and values. While the Code of Conduct does not address every situation you may encounter in your work, it provides you with relevant guidance and resources.
