Independent Medical Education

Lundbeck is highly committed to improving the quality of life of people living with psychiatric and neurological disorders. We are proud to support programs that advance the educational objectives of healthcare professionals and help them provide quality care to their patients. Consistent with this vision, Lundbeck will consider funding educational grants that support independent accredited and nonaccredited medical education for healthcare professionals.

An important part of our commitment is supporting the dissemination of scientific and educational medical information to enhance the quality of medical care with the ultimate goal of benefitting patients.

Grants are awarded at the sole discretion of Lundbeck LLC. We reserve the right to decline any grant request.

Education grant requests are evaluated strictly on their merit and alignment with Lundbeck’s overall strategy.

Grant funding or in-kind support must not be used for anything outside of the approved request and fees must be reasonable and customary.

All transfers of value to covered recipients (physicians, teaching hospitals, and fellows) may be reported and posted unless exempted from reporting per the Physician Payment Sunshine Act of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.
