Our health systems from medical education to research and clinical practice are influenced by pharmaceutical and medical device companies. The strategies of influence targeting healthcare professionals, students, patients, media, and politics represent a key challenge in modern medicine and the impartiality of science. As medical students are one of the main targets of pharmaceutical influence throughout their curriculum, they are also a vital player in the advocacy against the conflict of interest in medical education.
IFMSA and Health Action International are teaming up to organize a webinar so as to raise medical students’ awareness about the conflict of interest in medical education, and how the pharmaceutical influence shapes medical curricula and thus the quality of healthcare services, as well as discuss what actions medical students can lead to advocate against the pharmaceutical influence on medical education.
