Pfizer and Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMS) are collaborating to provide grant support for continuing professional education in the areas of atrial fibrillation and venous thromboembolism. We are committed to supporting innovative, independent medical education for healthcare professionals. Grants via this collaboration will be funded by Pfizer, but reviewed and approved by both companies.

Pfizer Global Medical Grants (GMG) supports the global healthcare community’s independent initiatives (e.g., research, quality improvement, or education) to improve patient outcomes in areas of unmet medical need that are aligned with Pfizer’s medical and/or scientific strategies.

Pfizer’s GMG competitive grant program involves a publicly posted general Request for Proposal (RFP) that provides detail regarding a general area of interest, sets timelines for review and approval, and uses an internal Pfizer review process to make final grant decisions. Organizations are invited to submit an application addressing the knowledge gaps as outlined in the specific RFP.

For all independent medical education grants, the grant requester (and ultimately the grantee) is responsible for the design, implementation, and conduct of the independent initiative supported by the grant. Pfizer must not be involved in any aspect of project development, nor the conduct of the independent education program.

Date RFP Issued: April 1, 2021

Geographic Scope: Global (excluding United States)

Clinical Area: Atrial Fibrillation/Venous Thromboembolism

Link to full RFP: Atrial Fibrillation and Venous Thromboembolism

Application Due Date: Application Cycles - please see RFP documentation

Specific Area of Interest: Projects that will be considered for Pfizer support will focus on improving the care of patients by addressing knowledge gaps in either Atrial Fibrillation (AF) or Venous Thromboembolism (VTE) or both areas.

The intent of this Request for Proposal (RFP) is to raise awareness and close knowledge gaps to reduce the time it takes for patients to be correctly diagnosed and make treatment more accessible, while supporting the development of a global network of TTR amyloidosis experts. Expanding the community of practice will help decrease the distance patients need to travel to be diagnosed, although valuable guidance may still be obtained from experienced centers further from home.
