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 3/21/2019, Dr. Rosen has reported the financial relationships with the companies listed below. 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.

I'm from Michigan and I wouldn't want to send someone that far away to get NO Answers like myself. I have heard nothing but great stories about Cleveland Clinic, and I'm sure that not every Doctor is quick to diagnose the patent before examining them. So I guess my experience here wasn't great so I wouldn't want to send someone that I cared about there.

I have been a patient at the Cleveland Clinic for years and have always been very impressed with their overall care. On this occasion, I was referred to Dr. Rosen by my local surgeon in Louisville, KY since he was not able to perform the complex surgery that I would need, and since Dr. Rosen is recognized as one of the best surgeons in the country for a total abdominal reconstruction surgery.

Dr. Rosen's nurse made sure to take the time with my husband and to make sure we understood what decisions we had to make and then made sure we knew who to get ahold of when we did decide. For someone to take this time when the clinic is so busy really impressed us.
