A growing number of medical institutions and organizationsare responding to concerns about potential biases in industry-funded continuing medical education (CME) by working to limit industry sponsorship of and influence in this realm. So far, such efforts are proving that industry-free CME is feasible, but not without challenges.
Several medical schools and medical centers are in the process of reducing or phasing out industry funding of CME at their institutions, including the University of Michigan Medical School in Ann Arbor, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York City, and East Carolina University Brody School of Medicine in Greenville, NC. In addition to these institutional efforts, the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) has developed more stringent standards to limit commercial influence on accredited CME programs.
