AMSA PharmFree Scorecard 2007

Posted by medliorator on June 3, 2008

The American Medical Student Association (AMSA) released the first “PharmFree Scorecard” in 2007. This initial Scorecard graded schools on the presence or absence of a policy regulating the interactions between their medical campuses and the pharmaceutical and device industries.

Beginning in November 2007, every U.S. medical school dean received a letter explaining the Scorecard project and requesting the submission of their policies. The letter also contained a check-list identifying relevant policy domains and requesting permission to make policies public.

Written and telephone follow-up continued until every institution had either responded, formally declined to respond, or failed to respond after at least four contact attempts.
