External Professional Relationships

A University of Maryland Department of Orthopaedics faculty member may have external professional relationships with health-care related businesses.  These relationships often lead to the development of new treatments and therapies.  The Department of Orthopaedics believes that transparency and honesty in the reporting of these relationships is essential to maintaining trust with our patients and mitigating any conflicts of interest or perceived conflicts that may arise. 

All external professional relationships maintained by members of the University of Maryland Department of Orthopaedics are reviewed and approved in advance by the Dean of the University of Maryland School of Medicine (UM SOM) for conformance with UM SOM policies regarding conflicts of interest, conflicts of commitment, and professionalism.
