Industry Relationships

Industry Relationships

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 4/15/2021, Dr. Bjelac 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.

Public Health Service-Reportable Financial Conflicts of Interest. Cleveland Clinic scientists and physicians engage in basic, translational and clinical research activities, working to solve health problems, enhance patient care and improve quality of life for patients. Interactions with industry are essential to bringing the researchers' discoveries to the public, but can present the potential for conflicts of interest related to their research activities. Click here to view a listing of instances where Cleveland Clinic has identified a Public Health Service (PHS)-Reportable Financial Conflict of Interest and has put measures in place to ensure that, to the extent possible, the design, conduct and reporting of the research is free from bias.

Not only is Dr. Bjelac personable, but she practices patient centered care and goes above and beyond in what she does. She made accommodations in her clinic for testing to prevent us from scheduling an additional appointment. She took the time to listen to concerns, thoroughly educate, and answer any questions she had. Dr. Bjelac and her staff were such a pleasure to work with!

the first thing she said to me was what do you want to get out of this visit, and no doctor has ever asked me that. I felt comfortable immediately and felt like she was really concerned of my feelings.

Reviewed on Oct 20, 2020

Amazing doctor and staff. I felt like they truly cared about us and wanted to make sure nothing was missed. Explained everything in an easy to understand manner and made sure my son was distracted as much as possible.

Reviewed on Oct 20, 2020

I feel extremely lucky to have access to doctors and nursing staff of this caliber. The whole experience was easy and we left with a good feeling at the end of the appointment.
