Conflicts of Interest and Commitment Reporting Website
All faculty and individuals holding teaching appointments, and anyone listed as principal investigator or key personnel on sponsored grants are required to report outside financial interests online at the PIN-enabled site:
Primary and select secondary faculty members are also required to report their outside professional commitments online on a separate website. The Faculty of Public Health recognizes that its members may engage in outside professional work, and to the extent these activities serve the Faculty’s interests, as well as those of the participant, the Faculty of Public Health approves of such involvement. However, with the exception of work performed in lieu of summer salary, faculty members should ordinarily, spend no more than 52 days per year (one day per week) in outside professional activities. Some outside work such as service on NIH Study Sections, committees of the NAS/NRC or IOM, or other public service activities, to varying degrees, is considered part of a faculty member’s responsibilities. On the other hand even public service efforts can become excessive. Therefore all outside activities must be disclosed and discussed with the Dean if that seems appropriate. Individuals who are required to report will be notified annually. The PIN-enabled site for professional commitments is located here.
