Physicians Prefer Big Pharma Medical Education

submitted by: admin on 10/14/2013


While physicians realize medical industry funding of continuing medical education credits leads to bias, they continue to prefer this to paying higher fees for independent educational events. Big Pharma and device companies sponsor 60% of the billion dollar CME industry! This shows a serious lack of concern on the part of MDs in obtaining information that is reliable and a naiveness about their own vulnerability to slanted medical education courses. Only 15% of MDs felt that these companies should be banned from giving educational courses.
