AMSA PharmFree Scorecard Grades U.S. Medical Schools on Conflict-of-Interest Policies; Only 7 Receive an 'A'
Date:6/3/2008

ned 'A' and 'B' scores are to be commended for setting a high bar and aggressively moving forward to ensure medical education, training and patient care is free of commercial bias," says Robert Restuccia, executive director of The Prescription Project. "While we still have a long way to go, we are optimistic that the growing momentum for reform will change the landscape and there will be great improvement next year."

The Prescription Project offers toolkits to help medical schools create strong conflict of interest policies in many of the areas identified in the AMSA PharmFree Scorecard, including: the provision of gifts, meals and pharmaceutical samples, ghostwriting, support for continuing medical education, and drug and medical device procurement. Prescription Project toolkits are available at HYPERLINK "http://www.prescriptionproject.org" http://www.prescriptionproject.org.

Launched in 2002, AMSA's PharmFree Campaign guides medical students in organizing to advocate for evidence-based rather than marketing-based prescribing practices, the removal of conflicts of interest and global access to essential medicines. AMSA provides toolkits, talks and training institutes to help medical students advance these goals. For more information, please visit HYPERLINK "http://www.pharmfree.org" http://www.pharmfree.org.
