Can financial support be provided through a Lundbeck medical education grant for meals or receptions?
Financial support for meals or receptions may be provided to the third-party provider only if the meal or reception is held at the time of the medical education conference. The meal or reception should be modest in cost and be held at a suitable venue that is conducive to discussion among faculty and attendees. The amount of time spent at the meal or reception must be subordinate to the amount of time spent at the medical education conference.
Can financial support be provided through a Lundbeck medical education grant for residents or other HCPs in training to attend educational conferences?
In accordance with the PhRMA Code on Interactions with Healthcare Professionals, funds to permit medical students, residents, fellows and other HCPs in training may be offered to attend carefully selected educational conferences. The selection of individuals who will receive the funds must be made by the academic or training institution. “Carefully selected educational conferences” are generally defined as the major educational, scientific, or policy-making meetings of national, regional or specialty medical associations.
Does previous support of a program by Lundbeck influence future support?
No. Each grant submitted to the Lundbeck Medical Grant Review Committee (LMGRC) will be evaluated based on individual merit.
