About Jason Turowski, MD

Grew up in a small suburb of Philadelphia, I would later go to both college and medical school in the City of Brotherly love. Moved south to Baltimore to complete my residency at the Johns Hopkins Hospital receiving world class training that I would continue once again in Philly at the University of Pennsylvania. Obtaining second to none training in Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine, along with research and clinical trial development, I would obtain the most advanced training in lung transplantation and advanced lung disease management within Penn's Transplant Institute with an additional fellowship therein. I was recruited here in the fall of 2013, being dual appointed to the Cleveland Clinics Respiratory Institute in Critical Care and Pulmonary Medicine with a specific focus in Lung Transplant Medicine.

Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists may collaborate with the pharmaceutical or medical device industries to help develop medical breakthroughs or provide medical expertise or education. Cleveland Clinic strives to make scientific advances that will benefit patient care and support outside relationships that promise public benefit. In order for the discoveries of Cleveland Clinic physicians' and scientists' laboratories and investigations to benefit the public, these discoveries must be commercialized in partnership with industry. As experts in their fields, Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists are often sought after by industry to consult, provide expertise and education.

To assure professional and commercial integrity in such matters, Cleveland Clinic maintains a program that reviews these collaborations and, when appropriate, puts measures in place to minimize bias that may result from ties to industry. Cleveland Clinic publicly discloses the names of companies when (i) its physicians/scientists receive $5,000 or more per year (or, in rare cases, equity or stock options) for speaking and consulting, (ii) its physicians/scientists serve as a fiduciary, (iii) its physicians/scientists receive or have the right to receive royalties or (iv) its physicians/ scientists hold any equity interest for the physician's/scientist's role as inventor, discoverer, developer, founder or consultant.* In publicly disclosing this information, Cleveland Clinic tries to provide information as accurately as possible about its physicians' and scientists' connections with industry.

As of 1/19/2021, Dr. Turowski has reported no financial relationship with industry that is applicable to this listing. In general, patients should feel free to contact their doctor about any of the relationships and how the relationships are overseen by Cleveland Clinic.
