Stanford faculty members owe their primary professional allegiance to the University, and their primary commitment of time and intellectual energies should be to the education, research, and scholarship programs of the institution.

Faculty members should conduct their affairs so as to avoid conflicts of commitment and avoid or minimize conflicts of interest. Disclosure of such interests is required under University, as well as School of Medicine policy.
