It is the mission of the School of Medicine Compliance Office to lead the initiative to ensure that the School of Medicine and the School of Nursing conduct activities, whether related to education, research or clinical, in a manner that is both consistent with regulatory, statutory and common law, and reflective of the highest ethical standards.
The role of the office is to provide expertise, consultation and assessment in matters of compliance as well as to facilitate implementation of a "compliant culture" appropriate to an academic medical center.
In accordance with this mission, the office conducts compliance reviews related to Human Subjects Research Compliance, Clinical Trials Billing Compliance, Research Financial Compliance and other regulatory risk areas identified as part of the institutional risk assessment. Tina R. Tyson, J.D., the Chief Compliance Officer, reports to the Audit Committee of the Duke University Board of Trustees through the Chancellor for Health Affairs.
With regard to regulatory risk areas that affect the School of Medicine and Duke University Health System, the School of Medicine Compliance Office works closely with the Duke University Health System Compliance Office. Training materials are cooperatively developed. Calls received on the toll-free hotline (1-800-826-8109) regarding School of Medicine concerns are distributed to the School of Medicine Compliance Office for response.
