(C) By signing the application for a clinical research faculty certificate, the dean of the school and the medical director of each affiliated teaching hospital are responsible for assuring that the holder of the certificate does not engage in practice outside its scope. They are further responsible for reporting any belief that practice outside its scope has occurred.
