To All P&S Faculty and Researchers:
Thank you for your ongoing commitment to compliance with University policies on conflict of interest.
For 2013, please be aware of a change in the P&S COI Policy on Education and Clinical Care:
As of January 1, commercial support should be appropriately disclosed to trainees, students, patients, and professional audiences.
You are reminded that Faculty and Researchers must disclose information about all business interests within the Clinical Care and Education (C/E) section of the form. Even if you have already disclosed the information in the Research section, outside financial interests must again be disclosed in the C/E section (see General FAQ #13 and Content FAQ #1).
You may be asked to re-file your annual disclosure form to comply with this requirement.
The revised 2013 policy is available at: www.cumc.columbia.edu/faculty/COI and is effective January 01, 2013.
Please file your 2013 P&S COI disclosure via Rascal: www.rascal.columbia.edu
Please recall that, as of 2012, some information disclosed on the annual COI form regarding education and clinical care is available on a publicly accessible CUMC website: www.rascal.columbia.edu/public/coi
Failure to comply with mandatory policies will prompt a formal review by CUMC’s COI Committee on Education and Clinical Care and recommendation to the Dean, and may lead to sanction up to and including non-renewal.
