Stanford extends ethics rules

Share this article:
Stanford adjunct clinical faculty—community physicians who volunteer teaching time—must follow the same policies as full-time faculty and thus are prohibited from accepting industry gifts of any size, including drug samples, according to new guidelines. They also will be barred from participating in speakers' bureaus.

“We reasoned that if the [Stanford] title were important to them, they should be asked to comply with the same policies to which all other faculty comply,” one dean said.

The medical center's industry-interactions policy, enacted in 2006, was revised in 2008 to include a ban on direct commercial support of CME.
