All staff, students, residents and faculty affiliated with the USC School of Dentistry, inclusive of all seven (7) divisions, fall within the scope of the USC Healthcare Compliance Program when practicing or teaching at one of the USC clinical or academic venues.
The USC Healthcare Compliance Program provides the definitive program scope and definition, policies and procedures, education, monitoring and auditing methodology for department/school implementation.
The USC Office of Culture, Ethics and Compliance randomly audits each of the clinical units to ensure adherence to the program policies and procedures, education requirements and monitoring requirements.
All USC School of Dentistry dental divisions utilize the common School of Dentistry billing system. The physical therapy and occupational therapy divisions utilize the common billing system adopted by the School of Dentistry or the Keck School of Medicine.
In accordance with the USC School of Dentistry Policy, lack of compliance results in disciplinary actions.
