Publication type: Journal Article

Kaplan NM.
The support of continuing medical education by pharmaceutical companies
New England Journal of Medicine 1979; 300:194-196


The article examines three questions: 1) why should continuing medical education be subsidized by drug companies; 2) what are the consequences of this practice; and 3) where are CME-drug company relations heading. Oral presentations are the most frequently used format for CME and also the format most difficult to regulate and therefore this article focuses on this type of CME.
