Conflict of Interest
The annual disclosure period for eligible UI Health Care employees is February 4 - April 30, 2013. All UI Health Care faculty, P&S, SEIU, and Merit Exempt staff working 50% time or more are required to submit an annual disclosure, even if they have no outside financial interests or activities to disclose.
Employees will use the electronic disclosure system called eCOI (electronic Conflict of Interest). The eCOI system combines the disclosure requirements for UI Health Care, Continuing Medical Education, and Conflict of Interest in Research

Faculty and staff at University of Iowa Health Care have increasing opportunities to engage in professional activities with industry and other outside entities.
Such activities may improve patient care through the development of new products; strengthen knowledge and skills; and contribute to the growth and development of expertise. Yet care must be taken to ensure that relationships between UI Health Care employees and outside entities are free from any actual or perceived conflicts of interest.
To reinforce our commitment to upholding the highest possible ethical standards and to foster greater transparency, University of Iowa Health Care implemented a Conflict of Interest/Conflict of Commitment policy on July 1, 2009. A revised version of the policy is effective on January 1, 2012.
A summary of changes lists the major changes to the revised policy.
Disclosures of external relationships made by UI Health Care faculty and staff members are publicly accessible.
If you have questions about the policy, please contact the Conflict of Interest Office at 319-384-5252 or email@example.com
