Disclose outside interests in M-Inform in July

July 1, 2019  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

It is time to review and update your job-related outside interest disclosures in M-Inform.

Employees who are required to annually disclose job-related outside interests (e.g., executives, managers, faculty, house officers, PAs, APRNs) receive a system email reminder at the beginning of July to kick-off the annual disclosure period. The email reminder includes a link to M-Inform with instructions on how to complete your disclosure.

Even if you do not have a job-related outside interest, you must still log into M-Inform to complete conflict of interest training and attest to having nothing to disclose.

Note that by policy, all employees are required to keep their disclosures of outside interests in M-Inform up-to-date throughout the year. This means that all employees must disclose job-related outside interests as they arise or change.
