    Conflict of interest disclosure reporting is managed by the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) through a system called Convey. Their contact information is as follows:

    I'm in the process of completing my disclosure, but I'm not sure if one of the questions applies to me or not. Who can I contact?If you have any questions, please contact our office by emailing help@icep.wisc.edu - we're happy to help!
