AMSA Pharm-free Scorecard 2010
D Lincoln Memorial University - DeBusk College of Osteopathic Medicine
City: Harrogate State: TN

This institution has a brief policy posted publicly online which bans gifts over $10, requires faculty supervision of student encounters with industry representatives, and bans ghost writing. They have provided strong curricular materials this year, which is an improvement from years past. Widening the scope of the current policy to cover management of faculty relationships with industry and requiring disclosure would go a long way toward improving their overall score.
