Disclosure of Financial Interests with Industry
Washington University and its physicians are committed to ensuring integrity and objectivity in medical decision-making. Some of our physicians work collaboratively with pharmaceutical or medical device companies to develop innovative ideas and products that can improve health care delivery and clinical outcomes for patients. In some instances, our faculty physicians are paid by these commercial companies to provide advice on product design or to speak about the use of medications, devices, equipment or procedures. These payments may include: a) compensation for consulting and speaking engagements, b) equity, and/or c) royalties for products invented by our faculty. Any payments to Washington University physicians must be based on tangible services and may not exceed fair market value for their work. In addition to disclosure on this web site, physicians earning more than $10,000 per year must disclose their corporate financial relationship in writing to patients when prescribing or using that company's products.

Dr. Gerald L. Andriole reported the following earned financial interests during calendar year 2014. Move your mouse over a header for more info.
Royalties: When a faculty member invents or conceives a new or improved process or product, the company that manufactures the product will make royalty payments to the faculty member. Royalty payments usually are a small percentage of the company’s revenue related to that product.
Equity: Equity is an ownership interest in a company. Faculty members may be paid for their service to a company in stock or the option to obtain stock.
Consulting &
Advisory Boards
Consulting and Advisory Boards: Faculty may be paid to provide expertise to a company by being their consultant, or by serving on an advisory board.
Speaker Fees
