Stanford University School of Medicine to expand ethics rules

New York Times, March 22, 2010
The Stanford University School of Medicine plans to introduce rules that would prohibit its volunteer teaching staff from giving paid speeches drafted by the makers of drugs or medical devices. Stanford already has one of the most comprehensive policies in the country governing the interactions between academic faculty and the medical industry. As of March 22, the 660 community physicians who volunteer their time to teach at Stanford will also have to abide by the same policy that the faculty members do.
