Educational Support Opportunities

Physicians, researchers, scientists and other healthcare professionals are increasingly challenged to maintain their knowledge, skills and abilities within their respective professions. Medical education therefore plays an important role in the quality of healthcare delivered across the globe. By providing an educational grant in support of the Congress, you are making a vital contribution to these efforts.

All grants are managed in compliance with relevant accreditation and industry compliance criteria.
