Conflict of Interest Policy

Basis for Policy

Statutes, regulations and University policies covering activities that may result in conflict of interest are:

  • Public Health Service, National Science Foundation and Food and Drug Administration regulations
  • Nebraska Conflict of Interest Statutes at Neb. Rev. Stat. §49-1493 et. seq
  • Bylaws of the Board of Regents of the University of Nebraska Sections 3.45 and 3.8
  • Board of Regents Conflict of Interest Policy, RP-3.2.8;


Potential conflicts of interest arise in a variety of circumstances in the academic health sciences center setting when an individual’s private financial interests either conflict with or create the appearance of conflicting with UNMC’s public interests.

UNMC shall identify, manage and if necessary, reduce potential conflicts of interest to maintain the public’s trust in UNMC’s teaching, research, patient care and service mission. While disclosure of potential conflicts of interest is necessary, most conflicts can be managed without eliminating the arrangement that gives rise to the conflict.
