Prof. Robertson's Research Published in New England Journal of Medicine

Prof. Robertson is a principal investigator in a new study on physicians taking money from the pharmaceutical industry. The research team’s study, Distributions of Industry Payments to Massachussetts Physicians, was published online in the New England Journal of Medicine last week. His team discovered that about 25% of physicians in Massachusetts do take money, and in some fields like urology, over 60% do. Some of his prior research has shown that these payments likely have an influence on prescribing decisions. Read the paper here.
