Stanford’s Adjunct Clinical Faculty Subject to Ethics Rule
More than 600 community physicians who volunteer as adjunct clinical faculty at the Stanford University School of Medicine are now prohibited from accepting pharmaceutical industry gifts or participating in speakers' bureaus. Stanford's ethics rules, created in 2006, previously only affected full-time faculty and represent one of the most comprehensive policies on academia-medical industry relations in the U.S.
