Just Medicine Campaign

No Kick Backs. No Speakers Bureaus. No Free Samples.
JUST MEDICINE.

Just Medicine, formerly known as the PharmFree Campaign, continues to reflect AMSA’s values, ambitions and goals in putting patients above profits and ensuring the most objective, evidence-based, affordable healthcare for patients.

Our vision for the practice of medicine is that it is simply based on evidence, not marketing, personal gain, or any interest other than that of the patient.

We seek to facilitate student engagement in work that promotes patient-centered, evidence-based clinical practice, medical education and research.

ACTIONS

  • COMPREHENSIVE CONFLICT-OF-INTEREST POLICIES: Just Medicine helps students advocate for, develop, and implement strong industry-relations policies at their academic medical centers. Our annual Just Medicine Scorecard evaluates and grades the conflict-of-interest policies at every US medical school in a variety of domains. Visit www.amsascorecard.org for more information
  • LEGISLATIVE SOLUTIONS: Just Medicine lobbies for legislation at the state and federal level that increases the transparency of industry relationships, reduces conflicts of interest, promotes evidence-based practice, and increases global access to essential medicines.
  • GLOBAL ACCESS: Just Medicine seeks to educate medical students on the the issue of access to medicines. Specifically, AMSA seeks to connect the market-driven practices of pharmaceutical companies to both domestic issues (conflicts of interest, marketing) and global issues (access to medicines, neglected disease research).
  • JUST MEDICINE CURRICULA: Just Medicine has developed a Model Just Medicine Curriculum for teaching about drug development, marketing and conflict of interest. Just Medicine is also currently developing resources to assist faculty and staff looking to make these changes at their schools, including a menu of ready-made lectures/slides and other materials, as well as a list of faculty across the country who are willing to consult on curricular development.
