Thank you for your interest in US WorldMeds. As part of our goal to positively change lives through improved healthcare, we are strongly committed to supporting independent medical education activities. The guidelines below have been developed to assist you in preparing medical education grant requests. We look forward to reviewing your application.
If you have questions regarding funding for medical fellowships/scholarships or Investigator-Initiated Trials (IITs), please first contact our Medical Affairs Department at email@example.com.
General Guidelines for Medical Education Grant Requests
Support by US WorldMeds of independent medical education activities is limited to only those that fall within the company's specific areas of therapeutic focus:
Please check back periodically for any updates to current areas of therapeutic focus.
Only fully-completed medical education grant applications will be reviewed, and completing the application does not guarantee approval nor financial support in the entire amount being requested.
The contact person at the requesting organization will be notified within 3 months of receipt of the application with the approval or denial status. Therefore, it is recommended that funding requests be submitted at least 3 months prior to the date of the event, as applicable, to ensure sufficient time for internal review.
If US WorldMeds is able to provide funding for the medical education activity, a Letter of Agreement (provided by US WorldMeds) must be signed by US WorldMeds and the Medical Education Provider.
Any activity for which a grant is awarded is required to be compliant with and adhere to federal and state guidelines and regulations, including, but not limited to, the FDA Final Guidance on Industry-Supported Scientific and Educational Activities, the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) Standards for Commercial Support, the American Medical Association (AMA) Ethical Guidelines for Gifts to Physicians from Industry, and the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA) Code on Interactions with Healthcare Professionals, where applicable.
All grants are awarded at US WorldMeds' sole discretion. Approval of grant funding is never related to or conditioned upon past prescriptions or purchases of US WorldMeds' products. US WorldMeds does not offer or provide medical education grants to encourage or to reward the prescription, purchase, ordering, or recommending of US WorldMeds products.
