Reminder: Changes to the conflict of interest disclosure form

Fostering a diverse and inclusive environment is one of the core missions of UNR Med. Our school has selected specific mission-based diversity groups through a school-wide process, recognizing the added value and perspective that faculty, staff and students from different backgrounds bring to the educational experience. We need your assistance to measure the effectiveness of these important efforts. This year, the annual conflict of interest reporting form will include a confidential one-question survey, which should take less than a minute to complete.

If you have questions please contact Dr. Nicole Jacobs, associate dean for Diversity and Inclusion, at 775-682-8479 or nnjacobs@med.unr.edu.

Complete the Conflict of Interest form.
