Conflict of Interest Policy

SIU School of Medicine encourages its employees to participate in sponsored research, to consult widely, and to engage in other activities that may benefit not only the participants but also the medical school and the public. However, while the medical school recognizes the benefits of such activities, it is also committed to ensuring that they are done properly. To this end, the medical school has established policies governing possible conflicts of interest and commitment. Information is available on the COI page: https://coi.siumed.edu
