Industry Relationships

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 VP&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 Columbia University Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons (VP&S), by the VP&S Vice Dean for Academic Affairs, and by the VP&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 April 2012 VP&S has made the information available on this website, which is managed solely by Columbia University. 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 complete annual disclosures filed by faculty and researchers.

Please note: information posted here may differ from that posted on other public websites, including the CMS "Open Payments" website. Differences between websites may result from different reporting periods and inclusion criteria.
