Code of Ethics
The cornerstone of the NCCAOM’s commitment to ethical business practices and professional conduct is its Code of Ethics. Every NCCAOM Diplomate and applicant pledges to abide by the NCCAOM® Code of Ethics standards and procedures as a condition of NCCAOM certification and certification maintenance.
All practitioners certified by the NCCAOM must be committed to responsible and ethical practice, to the growth of the profession’s role in the broad spectrum of United States healthcare, and to their own professional growth.
All NCCAOM Candidates must sign the statement of acknowledgement as part of their application for certification, in which they must attest that the information provided on the application and the supporting documents are accurate, true and correct. Candidates agree to abide by the NCCAOM® Code of Ethics and the policies and procedures of the organization, and to release all information pertinent to the application. Candidates also agree to strict confidentiality when it comes to examination security, transmitting information to another person or entity, and the ramifications if found to have done so.
