Clinical Conflict of Interest

A clinical conflict of interest can occur whenever a clinician, who has the ability to decide between competing products, devices, pharmaceuticals, or services in the management of their patients, has a financial interest in any one of these products. Risk of a conflict is particularly high when that financial interest could impact College of Medicine or Penn State Hershey purchasing decisions.

It is important that any significant financial interests which involve professional practice should be disclosed to the University (see disclosure tab on this website).
