INDEPENDENT MEDICAL EDUCATION PROGRAMS
The Alnylam grants office supports independent medical education activities provided to healthcare professionals (HCPs) to help close the professional practice gaps of learners and address their unmet educational needs. Activities should strive to ultimately improve patient care and must be compliant with all applicable legal and regulatory guidelines. Educational grants are considered financial awards for clinical, scientific, and disease state educational programs that provide meaningful education to healthcare professionals and researchers in areas of relevance to Alnylam, without tangible benefit to Alnylam in return.
As part of our ongoing commitment to putting patients first, Alnylam will accept grant requests for bona fide educational purposes from the following:
Educational providers that are accredited to provide continuing education (ie, CME, CE) by a national accrediting body, such as the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), or other such accreditor. Alnylam will also support Independent Medical Education (IME) that is not designated for credit.
Educational providers can be any of the following types:
•Continuing education offices of academic medical centers, medical universities, hospitals, or community health centers
•Professional medical societies/associations
•Managed care organizations
•Medical education partner companies/providers
