For Our Patients
Mount Sinai takes pride in the excellence and expertise of our physicians, and we make every effort to ensure that our physicians’ clinical decisions are made in the best interests of each patient. Often, as leaders in their respective fields, our physicians are highly qualified to collaborate with commercial companies in the development of new and innovative therapies to improve the care for patients. Companies also often support the educational and research missions of Mount Sinai by making donations or funding research projects.
Mount Sinai believes that collaborative relationships with industry are vital to promoting innovations in patient care and treatment, inventing and testing new technology and advancing the continued education of our physicians in these new technologies. At the same time, Mount Sinai recognizes that these relationships must be carefully scrutinized to ensure that they do not bias or appear to influence the medical decisions of the institution or its physicians, and we have a vigorous program in place to review and manage such relationships.
It is important to Mount Sinai that you are aware of relationships with industry and that you can ask questions about those relationships. If you have such questions, we encourage you to discuss them with your physician and/or review our Faculty Disclosure page for more details.
