Acumed proudly provides funding to support medical education
Acumed is committed to supporting the medical education of healthcare professionals in programs and activities that promote scientific knowledge, medical advancement, and the delivery of efficient health care.
Through the Acumed Grants Committee, Acumed invests in the future education of the orthopaedic community by donating to fellowship programs, educational conferences, scientific programs and charitable entities. Organizations with a genuine educational purpose or function may seek a grant from Acumed to support bona fide educational programs. Requests for grants from Acumed must be made in connection with an independent, educational, scientific, or policymaking conference that promotes scientific knowledge, medical advancement and the delivery of effective health care. In addition, the request for a grant must come from the organization itself and not from an individual physician or healthcare professional who is not an employee of the organization.
The Acumed Grants Committee is composed of non-sales and marketing employees dedicated to education, the promotion of medicine, and patient well-being. Each grant reviewed by the committee is evaluated and awarded based on its individual merit.
Acumed follows the AdvaMed Code of Ethics on Interactions with Health Care Professionals. Acumed awards grants to institutions and organizations without any condition of purchase, use or recommend use of any Acumed product.
The U.S. Physician Payment Sunshine Act requires all pharmaceutical, biologic and medical device manufacturers to report annually to the U.S. government payments and transfers of value made to U.S. physicians and teaching hospitals. This could include grants and research.
