Industry Relations and COI Policy

Statement on Industry Relations and Possible Conflicts of Interest

Cedars-Sinai believes that the fulfillment of its mission as a leader in health services, biomedical research, and the training of physicians and other healthcare professionals requires effective, transparent, and principled working relationships with pharmaceutical companies and medical device manufacturers, as well as other entities providing goods or services to the institution. In furthering such relationships, Cedars-Sinai is committed to working with its faculty, affiliated physicians, affiliated physician groups, as well as its executive and management staff, to ensure that potential conflicts of interest (COIs) are identified, reviewed and appropriately managed.
