Compliance Takes Everyone: Compliance and Ethics Week 2023


UT Health San Antonio is holding its annual Compliance and Ethics week, Nov. 13–17. It is part of the institution’s initiative to shine a spotlight on the importance of compliance and ethics. It is also an opportunity to recognize all faculty, staff and learners for always keeping compliance and ethics as a top priority.

Visit the Compliance and Ethics Week website to learn more about all the activities happening this week.

Please join in celebrating Compliance and Ethics Week, both virtually and in-person, by participating in the following events:

  • Meet the Institutional Compliance & Privacy Team to learn about new compliance initiatives.
  • Nominate a Compliance Champion.
  • Participate in the Compliance and Ethics games for a chance to win prizes.

Nominate a Compliance Champion

The Institutional Compliance and Privacy Office appreciates the daily work of faculty and staff to fulfill the mission of UT Health San Antonio. In recognition of that work, the Compliance Champion Award was established to commend individuals for their commitment to the highest standards of professionalism and their dedication to supporting culture of compliance.

Do you work with someone who does the right thing even when no one is looking? This means ethically stepping up even when it may be difficult.  It could involve protecting patients’ privacy, preventing fraud or abuse, or putting into practice UT Health San Antonio’s mission, policies, and Standards of Conduct.  If so, nominate them as a Compliance Champion.

Selected individuals will receive a gift from the Institutional Compliance and Privacy Office and be highlighted after this year’s Compliance and Ethics Week celebration, Nov. 13-17. The deadline to submit nominations is Friday, Nov. 17, at 5 p.m.

Submit your nomination today!
