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.
AbbVie has selected providers to be part of the AbbVie Independent Medical Education (IME) Provider Network. AbbVie will only consider grant requests submitted by providers who are part of the AbbVie IME Provider Network. Submissions from providers who are not part of the AbbVie IME Provider Network will no longer be considered for support.
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.
