Error in Text

JAMA Intern Med. 2020;180(7):1031. doi:10.1001/jamainternmed.2020.1428

The Research Letter titled “Comparison of Industry Payments in 2017 With Annual Salary in a Cohort of Academic Oncologists,”1 published online March 23, 2020, contained an error in the text. The sentence “Chairs and directors within departments and professors had the highest mean general payments (mean, $436 069; median, $433 819 [interquartile range, $351 199-$553 932]),” should have instead said, “Chairs and directors within departments had the highest mean general payments (mean, $52 430; median, $1516 [interquartile range, $129-$13 744]).” This includes changes to the numerical values and the removal of the phrase “and professors.” The error has been corrected online.
