Disclosure of Financial Interests with Industry

Washington University and its physicians and health professionals are committed to ensuring integrity and objectivity in medical decision-making. Some of our physicians and health professionals work collaboratively with pharmaceutical, medical device or other medical care related companies to develop innovative ideas and products that can improve health care delivery and clinical outcomes for patients.

Any payments to Washington University physicians or health professionals must be based on tangible services and may not exceed fair market value for their work.
