Survey: Clinicians Love Pharma Perks
Medical centers may ban them, med schools may rule against them, Congress may investigate them, but pharma perks are still popular among clinicians, according to a new study published this month in JAMA. A survey of faculty and trainees in the The Mount Sinai School of Medicine consortium in the New York area found that attitudes toward industry and gifts were generally positive; 72.2 percent of participants found sponsored lunches appropriate. “Notably, many participants [74.6 percent] found large gifts unacceptable and, like participants in previous surveys, believed that other physicians were more likely to be influenced by gifts and food from industry than they were.”
