Welcome to US GSK Independent Medical Education!

Updated May 29, 2018

This site is intended for US-based organizations requesting grant funding to support independent third-party educational activities (also called IME, CME, CPD) for US-based healthcare professionals (HCP). GSK’s priority is to identify and fund innovative, high-quality educational initiatives that are designed to close HCP knowledge, competence, and performance gaps to improve patient health.

Prior to submitting a grant, organizations must first register and be approved as an eligible educational provider. GSK accepts educational grant applications in response to a specific Call for Grant Applications (CGA). Grant review criteria, disease areas of interest, and grant submission dates are included in the CGA. As stated in the CGA and our Letter of Agreement, no GSK funds may be used for food, beverage, meals, travel, or accommodation costs for attendees.

GSK is not accepting IME grant applications at this time, as our CGA has expired for all disease areas. Please continue to monitor this website for our next CGA disease areas of interest and submission dates.
