As a prospective planner or faculty member, we would like to ask for your help in protecting our learning environment from industry influence. The ACCME Standards for Integrity and Independence require that we disqualify individuals who refuse to provide this information from involvement in the planning and implementation of Continuing Medical Education. Thank you for your diligence and assistance.
The intent of this disclosure is to allow the Institute for International Medicine the opportunity to mitigate any potential conflicts of interest to assure balance, independence, objectivity, and scientific rigor in all of its Continuing Medical Education activities.

Please disclose all financial relationships that you have had in the past 24 months with ineligible companies (see definition below).
For each financial relationship, enter the name of the ineligible company and the nature of the financial relationship(s). There is no minimum financial threshold; we ask that you disclose all financial relationships, regardless of the amount, with ineligible companies. You should disclose all financial relationships regardless of the potential relevance of each relationship to the education.
Ineligible Company: An ineligible company is any entity whose primary business is producing, marketing, selling, re-selling, or distributing healthcare products used by or on patients.
