Doctors face pressure to disclose all side pay
Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, January 12, 2009
Doctors' moonlighting for drug companies is coming under increased scrutiny, both at University of Wisconsin and across the country. This month, the trade group Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America enacted a voluntary ban on company gifts of branded pens, sticky notes and other items and dinners for doctors. Also of special concern are university physicians who are sought by drug companies because of the influence and respect they wield with colleagues practicing in communities.
