Medical Education Grants
Allergan recognizes the importance of independent medical education programs that enhance the level of patient care. Because of this, Allergan funds educational activities through its unrestricted educational grant program. The goal is to promote understanding of scientific, clinical, and healthcare issues that affect patient care. We provide an effective grant review process to help facilitate requests for quality independent education.

Allergan supports both certified and noncertified programs with independent medical educational grants. Certified programs, sometimes referred to as certified Continuing Medical Education (CME), are administered by accredited third-party vendors or other medical education companies that agree to comply with Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) guidelines.
Additionally, educational grants are provided only to an organization, such as an academic institution, an independent accredited provider, a patient association, or an advocacy group—never to individual physicians or private practice groups.
Ethical Grant Funding
Allergan operates under the highest ethical standards and in full compliance with all applicable laws, regulations, and guidelines. Approval of grant funding is never based on past prescriptions or purchases of Allergan products. Furthermore, Allergan does not offer or provide educational grants to encourage or to reward the prescription, purchase, ordering, or recommending of Allergan products. Our grant approval process complies with the guidance of the Office of Inspector General Compliance Program, Guidance for Pharmaceutical Manufacturers (PhRMA), the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education Guidelines, the PhRMA Code on Interaction with Health Care Professionals, and the AdvaMed Code of Ethics on Interactions with Health Care Providers, as well as internal Allergan policies.
