School of Medicine - financial interests of faculty


This site provides the public with information concerning the external financial interests of School of Medicine (SOM) faculty.  The data below represent faculty disclosures for calendar year 2013.

The research, patient care, education, and community service missions of the SOM must be conducted with the greatest integrity, avoiding the appearance of bias in order to maintain public trust.  SOM faculty are required to disclose all significant financial relationships with organizations outside of the University that are related to their institutional responsibilities, both annually and any time new financial interests arise.  These disclosures are evaluated for actual or potential financial conflicts with the missions of the SOM, as defined by federal regulations, state law, and University policy.

The SOM does not equate external financial interests with conflicts of interest; rather, the School recognizes the benefits of and supports appropriate academic-industry collaborations.  Such collaborations between faculty-physicians and pharmaceutical or medical device companies lead to the development of new drugs, treatments, or devices to improve health care options.  Patients should feel free to ask their physician about any relationship he or she may have with a company and whether and how that relationship affects the clinical care being provided.

This site lists the following significant financial interests associated with their institutional responsibilities:

  • Ownership.  Faculty must disclose an ownership interest >3% in a publicly traded company or any ownership interest in a non-publicly traded company.  Ownership includes the total for the faculty member and immediate family.
  • Income.  Faculty must disclose income from a single entity that exceeds $5,000.  Disclosed income includes both the faculty member and her/his immediate family.  Disclosures are broken into the following categories:
  • Industry-sponsored grant and contract support.  Faculty who served as Principal Investigators on industry-sponsored agreements that were active during the year.  These agreements flowed through the University.  Therefore, any resulting financial benefit received by our faculty was part of their institutional remuneration.


For further information on how professional relationships between industry and SOM faculty are governed and managed at the School of Medicine, please refer to the policies below:
