PI: Kevin Finkel, MD / IRB # E-HHC-2021-0302

This study is a survey study targeting medical students from nine different national medical schools. The primary aim is to evaluate whether medical students believe certain conflicts of interest introduce bias into biomedical research. Secondary aims include determining how medical students perceive conflicts of interest and their opinions on conflict of interest policies in medical research. Hartford Hospital is the primary site and will be solely responsible for the storage and analyses of data and publication. It is a multi-center, cross-sectional, descriptive survey of medical students at the following institutions: Florida Atlantic University Charles E.
