Faculty members have a responsibility to disclose financial interests. The Conflicts of Interest office and its related committee and working groups, have the responsibility to determine whether a financial interest represents a conflict of interest.
Managing real and perceived conflicts of interest protects the reputation and integrity our institution and faculty. Our goal is to eliminate or mitigate situations that could bias the conduct of our research, care of our patients, and the learning environment of our students and trainees.
Managing conflicts is a collaborative effort between the individual (faculty member, trainee, or student) and the COI office. It requires education, training, and a commitment to transparency and accountability.
The COI Office provides detailed information on how conflicts of interest are managed:
- Review and Management of Research Conflicts
- Review and Management of Business Conflicts
- CITI Training
