Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences Policies

Effective July 1, 2013, The New Jersey Medical and Health Sciences Education Restructuring Act provided for most schools and units of UMDNJ to be transferred to Rutgers. As a result of the ongoing process of integrating policies and procedures, you may see changes to this website and the policies. It is important to refer to Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences (RBHS) policies for changes following July 1st . Please also refer to Rutgers’ policies and procedures for policies that apply throughout the University, including RBHS. Universitywide policies related to Compliance, HIPAA, and Risk Management can be found on the Rutgers policies website along with additional information about the Rutgers-UMDNJ Integration.

All members of the Rutgers community, including students, faculty and staff in RBHS, should read and understand the policies contained within the University Policy Library. It is important to note, over the course of the integration with UMDNJ, several policies were migrated from UMDNJ, or remain from Rutgers, that do apply to all students, faculty, and staff. The table below outlines the applicability of each policy in the RBHS Policy Library and the University Policy Library. Please note: if there is a conflict between applicability as expressed in the policy, and applicability as set forth in this table, applicability as expressed in the policy governs. You may direct any questions to the Office of the RBHS Chancellor.

Unless otherwise stated, policies listed in this section apply to Rutgers University students, faculty, and staff within legacy UMDNJ schools (Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, New Jersey Medical School, School of Nursing (formerly UMDNJ School of Nursing), School of Health Professions, School of Public Health, Graduate School of Biomedical Science, and Rutgers School of Dental Medicine (formerly New Jersey Dental School).

RBHS students, faculty, and staff should note the following policies found in the University Policy Library (these policies are applicable only to legacy UMDNJ).  As noted above, students, faculty and staff should read and understand all policies contained within the University Policy Library, as applicable.
