Educational Grant Support for Organizations Providing Accredited and Non-accredited Medical Education for Healthcare Professionals

Celgene will consider making grants in support of accredited or non-accredited medical education for healthcare professionals via live programs or enduring materials. Medical Educational Grants are awarded in support of high quality, independent educational programs and materials, which demonstrate the potential to improve patient care and health outcomes. Supported programs must be independent, objective, balanced and scientifically rigorous. Grants cannot be tied, in any way, to past, present, or future prescribing, purchasing or recommending (including formulary recommendations) of any drug. Celgene will consider grant requests for both accredited and non-accredited continuing education, with a preference given to accredited educational programs.
