Statement of Economic Interest

Requests for addition of a laboratory test to the Hospital Formulary are official University actions and subject to the University of California's Conflict of Interest policies. Therefore, medical staff members who initiate requests for addition of a test to the Hospital Formulary are required to disclose whether or not they have any financial interests in the company which manufactures the recommended testing reagents.

This form is designed to enable the Committee to be aware of any financial interests when it considers Formulary addition requests; it does not preclude medical staff members with such interests from making addition requests and will not preclude approval of the requested lab test for addition to the formulary. This information will become part of the Committee's records and will be accessible to Committee members only.

In the past 24 months, have you or your Division received research funds or other financial support from a manufacturer of required reagents for this request laboratory test?

In the past 24 months, have you or any close relative received any form of loan, gift, salary, honoraria or compensation for consulting services from the manufacturer? Have you or any close relative maintained any other financial interest (e.g. stock options) in the test’s manufacturer?
