IU Indiana University

for conflict of interest at the IU School of Medicine

The Indiana University School of Medicine recognizes that there are significant opportunities to improve health through working relationships between its faculty and commercial enterprises. It is clear that these relationships need to be well defined by our institution and that appropriate policies must exist that both guide and govern collaborations between faculty and private industry. 

An extensive review of the IUSM Conflict of Interest policies is currently underway. An updated policy was created in the summer of 2014, and an Open Comment period provided the Committee with feedback to improve the document. The committee is currently working on integrating the feedback into a final policy. This new policy will then be subject to approval by the appropriate IUSM committees before implementation. Until that time, however, the current Industry Relations Policy remains in place.

To help gain a better understanding of the scope of the policy, we have included a page of frequently asked questions (FAQs) for our patients as well as the media.
