The Albert Einstein College of Medicine strives to ensure objectivity, balance, transparency, and scientific rigor in all academic activities.
To accomplish this goal, Einstein has established a Conflict of Interest Office, has appointed a Conflict of Interest Director, and has established a Conflict of Interest Committee composed of a balanced representation of the institution's clinical and pre-clinical faculties, as well as ex-officio representatives from the administration of the College of Medicine and its Affiliates.
Einstein has a comprehensive set of Conflict of Interest Policies. To identify potential conflicts, all faculty are to complete a web-based COI disclosure system to disclose any financial interests or other relationships relevant to their academic activities that may create (or create the appearance of) a conflict of interest. After review of these disclosures, the Conflict of Interest Committee establishes plans as required to mitigate identified conflicts of interest.
