For Direct Sponsorship or Joint Providership
Commercial support is any financial or in-kind contribution given by a commercial interest to support the cost – in whole or in part – of a CME activity. A “commercial interest” is any entity (e.g., pharmaceutical company, medical device manufacturer) producing, marketing, re-selling, or distributing health care goods or services consumed by, or used on, patients. For further information, please review the ACCME’s Standards for Commercial Support.
For each company providing commercial support either a Letter of Agreement for Commercial Support for Direct Sponsorship OR a Letter of Agreement for Commercial Support for Joint Providership must be executed and sent to the CME Office prior to the activity.
