Industry Relationships of Faculty Members

UAMS faculty members may have business or collaborative relationships with other companies in the healthcare industry. These relationships may include activities such as research, education and training, consulting, ownership, or intellectual property interests. While these relationships are beneficial for advancing research and developing new technologies and therapies to benefit patients and improve health outcomes, they may also give rise to potential conflicts of interest. 

UAMS has established policies and procedures to assure that private interests of faculty members and their immediate family do not improperly influence medical decision-making. UAMS faculty members are required to disclose industry relationships to the UAMS Conflict of Interest Office at least annually. The Conflict of Interest Committee will then evaluate and monitor these relationships to make sure that faculty relationships with industry are consistent with the UAMS objectives of placing the needs of patient first and conducting research with integrity, objectivity, and an emphasis on the safety of volunteers.
