Annual Disclosure 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.
The Office of Regulatory Affairs administers the survey and works with department facilitators to ensure that faculty complete their surveys by the deadline. Visit the Annual Disclosure Survey page for more information.
Each year the annual disclosure survey is due by the beginning of March; faculty who do not complete the required disclosure survey will have their faculty appointments terminated effective April 1 for lack of compliance.
