Astellas, US Independent Medical Education and Medivation, Inc., a Pfizer Company, Global Medical Grants -- Call for Independent Medical Education Grant Applications Oncology – Prostate Cancer
Astellas and Pfizer (collectively, the Companies) are committed to supporting high quality, evidence‐based independent medical education (IME) that seeks to improve the overall safety and quality of patient care and treatment. The intent of this Call for Grant Applications (CGA) is to encourage organizations to submit grant applications for independent CME/CE certified education designed to close knowledge gaps identified in the public healthcare landscape, drive measureable improvements in knowledge, competence and performance of healthcare professionals, and advance patient health outcomes. “Independent” means that the projects funded by the companies, are the full responsibility of the recipient organization. The Companies do not have influence over any aspect of the supported projects and only ask for interim and final outcomes reports including a description of the impact of the projects.
The purpose of this CGA is to encourage organizations to submit grant applications for independent CME/CE certified education designed to enhance understanding of increasingly complex treatment options and close knowledge gaps in prostate cancer.

Individual requests up to $250,000 will be considered for funding.
