Annual Disclosure of External Professional Relationships Survey
Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine (Feinberg), Northwestern Memorial HealthCare (NMHC), Children’s Hospital of Chicago Medical Center (Lurie Children's), and the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab (SRALAB) have adopted policies that require physicians, faculty, management, and certain staff to disclose industry and certain other external relationships through an annual survey. Each person's responses are reviewed, and, if necessary, individual conflict management plans are developed and implemented. Much of the information gathered from faculty through the survey is posted for the public via Feinberg Faculty Profiles, to which NMHC's website links.
