Abstract: Changes in regulations for corporate-sponsored presentations may present ethical dilemmas for physicians, requiring careful consideration and due diligence when accepting a speaking engagement.

As physicians, we are often invited to speak on behalf of pharmaceutical companies or device manufacturers. These invitations are typically presented to those who use a particular product with great success or are well-recognized and respected by their peers for publications, research, surgical prowess or other accomplishments.
