Medical education - both company-driven and independent medical education grants - is necessary for helping the healthcare community keep up with the latest innovations in treatment options, mechanisms of action and patient care. This report provides medical education benchmarks, best practices and trends for teams striving to improve their medical education methods.
Four main areas of medical education are discussed in this report:
Given US regulations, surveyed US teams sitting under medical affairs do not conduct company-driven medical education. However, global or ex-US medical education teams are often responsible for both company-driven and independent medical education.
IME events and company-driven events may occur in different formats - e.g., small in-person events or online programs - and may take place during different stages of a product's lifecycle. Whether the related product is niche, blockbuster or common may play a role in the number and type of events surveyed teams conduct or fund.
For teams funding IME, selecting a continuing medical education (CME) provider and maintaining distance from the event's organization can be challenging. For companydriven medical education, however, a team's challenges may revolve around selecting the best-fit speakers and inviting the right number of people to reach participation goals. Of note, many teams are moving toward utilizing more internal company speakers at events in lieu of external experts.
Finally, teams are advancing medical education as a whole by creating methods and plans to increase knowledge uptake and practice change. This report highlights ways for medical education teams to improve medical education outcomes, demonstrate value and elevate patient care.
