Wisconsin CME Ties to Pharma Makes the News

March 31, 2009 at 2:24 am Leave a comment

The Chronicle of Higher Education news blog on march 30th includes a story on CME practices at the University of Wisconsin. The headline, like many reporting on industry support for CME, is a bit sensational – “U. of Wisconsin’s Industry-Backed Courses Mislead Doctors and Could Hurt Patients”. A little disappointing for this publication. The article picked up by the Chronicle was published by a Wisconsin newspaper the Milwaukee Journal Sentinal. That article contains several inaccuracies but it is worth the read.

Another pharma/CME bashing. If this doesn’t stop soon say bye bye to pharma funding for CME. Some may think that is a good idea. Soon pharma may agree. Your thoughts?
