Interactions with Vendors and Other Commercial Entities

Deposit to General Fund

With the exception of CME events (see Section III-C of this policy), any vendor contribution must be in the form of a general educational grant paid directly to a School or Hospital fund. No direct payments may be made to any Mount Sinai faculty member, trainee, or employee. Mount Sinai shall retain exclusive responsibility for all aspects of educational events. Corporate sponsors may not make commercial exhibits, distribution of promotional materials or the inclusion of company representatives a requirement for support. A letter of agreement outlining expectations and restrictions will be signed by both the department Chair and the vendor.
