Medical Education and Fellowship Grants Program

Paladin Labs Medical Education Grants provide funding in the form of unrestricted grants to support Medical Education (including travel sponsorships to international conferences) and Fellowship Programs for Canadian healthcare professionals. This represents one aspect of Paladin’s commitment to improving patient health by providing support to educational initiatives for healthcare professionals that meet our standards of quality and compliance.

Support shall not be granted with an intent to promote Paladin products or otherwise to reward past or influence current or future prescribing, purchasing volume, or formulary treatment of a Paladin product. Grants may never be offered for any commercial purpose. Educational programs must present multiple treatment options as dictated by standard of care and not focus exclusively on one approach.

Robust standards and policies assure that Paladin Educational Grants may only be provided in support of an educational initiative which is organized and conducted completely independent of influence from Paladin and its representatives and/or agents. All Paladin-supported activities must:

  • be non-promotional in tone/nature
  • provide information that is fair and balanced
  • be accurate and not misleading
  • apply all applicable disclosures regarding Paladin funding during the educational activity

Current Main Therapeutic Area of Interest

Submission Process
