University of Texas Southwestern gets a B in study of drug industry conflicts of interest

Dallas Morning News, June 4, 2008
In a national study that measured the conflict of interest between medical schools and the drug industry, Dallas' UT Southwestern Medical School received the state's highest score. Texas A&M Health Science Center College of Medicine in College Station, the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston and the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio received Fs, the last two because they did not respond to the survey. Officials at Texas A&M, the only school that received an F after submitting the required material, did not comment. The study, commissioned by the American Medical Student Association, said the school's conflict of interest policy does not address gifts from the pharmaceutical companies, among other things.
