Conflicts of Interest

The Committee on Conflicts of Interest and Commitment administers the Conflicts of Interest Program at Thomas Jefferson University. Being open about conflicts of interest allows everyone (including patients, students, and the public) to judge for themselves whether particular relationships influence decisions we make when carrying out Jefferson-related responsibilities. Disclosing conflicts of interest is one of the means through which we demonstrate our commitment to integrity and transparency.

Per the below policies, designated faculty, key personnel, and members of the Board of Trustees are required to disclose any actual or potential conflicts of interest on an annual basis.
