Ongoing education is essential to ensuring that healthcare professionals can continue to deliver the best possible care based on the latest advances in medicine. Gilead supports high-impact, continuing medical education programs that expand the knowledge and skills of healthcare professionals.

Gilead has funded a range of Medical and Scientific Support projects, including:

  • Continuing medical education (CME) accredited by ACCME or another relevant organization
  • Non-accredited CME in compliance with FDA guidelines
  • Scientific conferences
  • Lecture series or symposia

Please remember that attendance at Medical and Scientific Support events should be open to professionals in the community. The principal speaker may not be employed by, or the audience limited to, the funded organization.

The types of Medical and Scientific Support organizations Gilead has funded include:

  • Medical universities
  • Professional associations
  • Community health centers
  • Hospitals and academic medical centers

Note: If you represent an accredited medical education program that involves for-profit medical education companies or that has a national or regional scope (e.g., satellite symposia at scientific conferences), Gilead offers a separate application and review process managed by the Gilead Independent Medical Education Department (IMED). For more information, contact the IMED department at imed@gilead.com.
