Educational allowances and support for Non-US Based Healthcare Professionals

Effective January 1, 2018, MedTech Europe: Code of Ethical Business, AdvaMed, and APACMed prohibit Medical Device Companies (MDCs) from providing direct financial sponsorship for registration, housing, travel, and meals to Healthcare Professionals (HCPs) to attend medical education conferences or training programs.

Medical Device Companies may give restricted educational grants to certain organizations to provide financial support to non-US based healthcare professionals to attend medical educational events

1. Healthcare Organizations Medical Device Companies are permitted to provide educational grants to hospitals. The hospital administrator is responsible for allocating grants to eligible health care professionals. Check with your cath lab director or hospital administrator for more information.

2. National Society Medical Device Companies are permitted to provide educational grants to national societies. Each Society will be responsible for allocating grants to eligible health care professionals. Check with your Society for more information.

3. Trusted Third-Party Organization A few MedTech compliant, trusted-third party organizations have been approved to seek educational grants from Medical Device Companies to provide financial support to eligible health care professionals to attend medical meetings.
