Independent Medical Education is funding to an independent third party to support the development or implementation of clearly defined medical or education programs or activities for health care providers that foster increased understanding/knowledge of scientific, clinical or health care issues that contribute to the enhancement of patient care.
Patient Education is programs designed primarily to advance disease state or treatment education to the patients/consumers and/or care partners.
Charitable donations support 501(c)(3) or other nonprofit organizations for specific nonprofit purposes. For nonprofit providers (e.g. hospitals) of their related foundations, the nonprofit purpose must specifically relate to support for low-income persons or families, indigent/homeless persons or families or underserved or uninsured persons or families.
Other request types include fellowships.
