    The AAMC Sept. 1 submitted comments to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) in response to the agency’s draft scientific integrity policy.  

    The draft policy includes specific provisions intended to prohibit political interference, ensure the independent review of scientific activities, and facilitate the free flow of scientific information.  

    The draft is based on the National Science and Technology Council Framework for Federal Scientific Integrity Policy and Practice and is a part of the implementation of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy’s broader federal-wide efforts on restoring trust in government through scientific integrity. The final policy is expected to be released on the HHS website by February 2024.
