Welcome to the Alkermes Medical Education Grant Request site. The purpose of this site is to facilitate the submission of an educational grant request to Alkermes online.
Alkermes is committed to contributing to independent education (e.g. CME) through grants.
Compliance with all applicable regulations and codes drives all activities and contributions of the company. Alkermes follows the requirements of the Compliance Program Guidance for Pharmaceutical Manufacturers issued by the Department of Health and Human Services Office of the Inspector General (“OIG Guidelines”), the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America Code on Interactions with Healthcare Professionals (“PhRMA Code”), the FDA Guidance to Industry Supported Scientific and Educational Activities, and the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (“ACCME”) Standards for Commercial Support.
During the current fiscal year, the company has assigned funds to support educational events in its areas of expertise and research. Alkermes provides educational grants only to support independent programs for interested healthcare participants where the program relates to therapies, disease states, or public health subjects in therapeutic areas in which Alkermes participates through its products or research.
Our particular focus this year includes educational activities with pragmatic approaches to improve patient care and public health in the domains of schizophrenia, alcohol and opioid dependence. We expect to contribute to a better understanding of the treatment in a broader sense, including psychosocial methods as well as medications.
Professional societies and associations, academic medical centers, institutions dedicated to the teaching of nursing and pharmacy, teaching hospitals, accredited educational providers, disease related organizations and medical education companies are encouraged to apply for educational grants.
