Doctor quits Brigham to speak for pay

Boston Globe, January 25, 2010
When given the choice to either stop moonlighting as a paid speaker for pharmaceutical companies or quit his job at a top Harvard teaching hospital, Boston physician Lawrence M. DuBuske chose to resign from Brigham and Women's Hospital at the end of the month. Out of thousands of U.S. doctors hired by drug-maker GlaxoSmithKline to talk about its products, DuBuske was the highest paid during a three-month period last year, the company recently disclosed: He made $99,375 for giving 40 talks to other physicians last April, May, and June.
