Request Attachment Templates
Please use the templates below if they are required on the request application.
The academic institution must apply on behalf of the healthcare professional in training. If a request is submitted directly by a healthcare professional in training, the request will be declined and the academic institution must reapply directly. Scholarships for HCPs in training are payable to the third party qualifying conference sponsor or the professional’s academic institution, not directly to the professional, and Medtronic does not participate in individual scholarship recipient selection.
If funding is approved to your institution and the funding applied to a physician, including a fellow, the funding is in scope for reporting to the National Physician Payment Transparency Program: Open Payments (also known as Sunshine Act). The physician's name will be reported along with the academic institution as required by Open Payments law. Funding applied to medical residents will not be reported, although if your institution is a teaching hospital, Medtronic will report the contribution made to your institution. Medtronic will provide funding for approved fellowship grants only after information identifying the individual recipient fellow(s) has been received.
For charitable fundraising requests related to disease states treated by Medtronic therapies. The recipient, except in rare instances, must be a tax-exempt charity.
Effective January 1, 2018, Medtronic is complying globally with changes to the codes of conduct introduced by MedTech Europe, APACMed, and AdvaMed China by ending the practice of directly paying for or reimbursing the expenses of any individual healthcare provider to attend or speak at a third party educational event, society meeting or third party congress.
Medtronic remains committed to supporting society and industry scientific programs for education and scientific change. While no longer providing direct sponsorship, Medtronic may, in many cases, provide grants to industry organizations so that they may subsidize the costs for physicians and other healthcare providers to travel to and attend such programs.
Organizers of third party educational events, healthcare institutions and professional associations may apply for a grant by completing the Congress Attendee Grant application form. Completion of the application does not guarantee funding.
The information provided in this section does not apply to healthcare providers in the United States where existing Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) rules apply.
This selection is for requests where Medtronic is asked only to exhibit at a conference or other meeting venue.
