Compliance Office

The University of Rochester Medical Center Compliance Office promotes and supports a culture that builds compliance consciousness into every employee's activities. The Compliance Office website provides a variety of internal plans and policies as well as educational tools. The office is available to support individuals in their duties and responsibilities. Payer guidelines, policies, and regulations are also available through the website.

Equity & Inclusion

Equity and inclusion are core values at the University of Rochester Medical Center. Bringing these values and our institution’s vision to fruition requires an ongoing commitment to ensuring an inclusive, welcoming, and supportive environment for everyone within our community. The School of Medicine & Dentistry Office of Equity and Inclusion closely works and shares resources with the University’s Office of Equity and Inclusion to cultivate a culture of inclusive excellence at both our School of Medicine and Dentistry and overall Medical Center.

Our five-year Equity & Anti-Racism Action Plan reflects input and ideas from medical students, residents, trainees, faculty members, and staff across the Medical Center, along with supportive groups and individuals from the Greater Rochester community. It calls us—as individuals and collectively as an institution—to build, recruit, nurture, exemplify, and engage in the work of being anti-racist.
