P&S Faculty and Researchers' Industry Relationships Related to Education and Clinical Care
The faculty and researchers of the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons (P&S) have responsibilities for research, education, clinical care, administration and other professional duties. For students and trainees, P&S faculty and researchers not only provide training but also serve as models of professional conduct. In carrying out their responsibilities, our faculty and researchers are committed to upholding the highest standards of professional integrity. P&S faculty and researchers are required to comply with Columbia University policies on conflict of interest, and in addition, to comply with the P&S policy on conflict of interest specific to education and clinical care.
Pharmaceutical, device, biotechnology and medical education companies frequently collaborate with our faculty and researchers in work that promotes improved patient care and scientific advances. While these relationships are synergistic in the development and application of medical and scientific discoveries, these activities must not infringe upon our mission or the integrity of our faculty and researchers.
To assure transparency in industry relationships, as well as to manage potential conflicts of interest in education and patient care which might arise from industry relationships, all P&S faculty and researchers, whether full time, part time, salaried or voluntary, are required annually to report outside activities and financial interests in the preceding 12 months that relate to education and clinical care. Annual disclosures are reviewed and overseen by the College of P&S, by the P&S Vice Dean for Academic Affairs, and by the P&S Faculty COI Review Committee.
In the interest of transparency with regard to relationships with industry that are relevant to education and clinical care, beginning in 2012 P&S has made the information available on this website. If patients have questions regarding their physician, they may search this website by the physician's name. Please note that information posted on this website reflects that contained in the most recent annual disclosures filed by faculty and researchers on or after April 1, 2012. Information posted does not include amendments that may be filed in between annual disclosures. In addition, information posted here may be formatted differently than other public websites, and may cover different reporting periods, factors which may result in discrepancies between this and other websites in reported relationships.
* Please note: The search requires at least 3 letters of the Last Name; however, your search will be more precise the more letters of the name you can enter. If the faculty or researcher's last name is hyphenated, you may search by either name. Clicking the row heading will arrange the names in alphabetical order. If the person for whom you are searching has less than 3 letters in his/her last name, you can still search for that person by putting in 2 letters and the search will do an exact match on the name.
