What is Third-Party Education for HCPs?

Third-party educational activities include any scientific, educational, or professional program, meeting, or event for HCPs conducted by a third party and supported by GSK, including but not limited to, continuing medical education (CME), disease awareness, or sponsorship of symposia at medical conferences.


In order for any activity to be funded by a grant, the third-party organization must design and deliver the activity independent of GSK control, influence, and involvement.


Educational grants to support third-party educational activities can only be funded through the US GSK Independent Medical Education process.
