UIWSOM Student Handbook and Student Code of Conduct
The UIWSOM Student Handbook addresses academic policies and professional conduct and standards. In addition to this Student Handbook, all learners at the University of the Incarnate Word are bound by the core values and behavioral expectations of all University of the Incarnate Word students as outlined in the UIW Student Code of Conduct. The UIWSOM Student Handbook takes precedence and governs academic policies, professional and personal conduct and standards. It is the responsibility of each learner to read, understand, and follow this Student Handbook. While the provisions of this handbook will ordinarily be applied as stated, the school reserves the right to change any provision listed, including but not limited to academic requirements for graduation. Every effort will be made to keep learners advised of any such changes. However, it is especially important that each learner note that it is their responsibility to keep apprised of current graduation requirements by regular consultation with their faculty advisor.
This Handbook may be modified by the University of the Incarnate Word School of Osteopathic Medicine at any time during the academic year. All modifications will be written with approval from the Dean of UIWSOM, the Office of Student Affairs, the Office of Medical and Interprofessional Education, and the UIWSOM Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine Curriculum Committee.
