Commentary:

University of Hawai'i John A Burns School of Medicine has a mixed policy. Strong points include prohibition of Speakers Bureaus and renumeration of off-site events."Discouraged" gifting is not a strong enough language to place substantial limits on gifting (similar language is used with Samples). This is similar to not placing frequency limits on $25 gifts. No policy on Consulting, Oversight or Curriculum were provided.
