Abstract:

In 2008, Harvard Medical School was graded badly by the American Medical Student Association for its poor performance in terms of tracking and controlling funds it received from activities related to the pharmaceutical industry. It transpired that there were many conflicts of interest and biases at the School, with faculty encouraged to promote certain drugs based on the funding they receive from pharmaceutical companies. After a lobby for change driven by students and a hearing into corporate funding, the School's new policy allowed their official grade to improve, yet the School still allows faculty to consult and work with businesses and permits pharmaceutical companies to fund postgraduate medical courses.
