Independent medical education

GSK Australia’s model for funding education initiatives for healthcare professionals targets disease areas where there is patient need and mutual scientific interest. Our support is fully at arm’s-length – we have no involvement or influence on the educational content development, logistics, selection of speakers or participants. We focus our financial resource on programmes that have the greatest potential to enable people to do more, feel better, live longer.

Our disease areas of interest change periodically. In 2018 we funded a total of 2 programmes to a value of $135,000.
