Annual Certification

Full-time faculty and salaried part-time faculty in the School of Medicine must submit an Annual Certification (formerly known as the Annual Outside Interests Statement).  The purpose of the Annual Certification is to confirm that the Office of Policy Coordination and department directors have a complete, accurate, and up-to-date account of your reportable private activities with, and/or financial or fiduciary interests in, outside entities.  The Annual Certification does not affect the obligation to disclose outside activities and interests as they arise and before proposing related research.  It is essential that disclosures be made in a timely manner.  Late disclosure may lead to serious consequences.
