AbstractClinician researchers have a number of roles, each of which carries specific obligations. There are times when these obligations may be in conflict with each other. Using a narrative case study that describes a group of colleagues discussing their clinical department's participation in an industry-sponsored research protocol, we illustrate a number of the obligations faced by clinician researchers, and discuss how competing interests and obligations can lead to ethical problems.
