General Info

Med update GmbH is the organizer of high-quality medical training courses, the update seminars. Neutrality is in the foreground of all updates: Independence in the program planning as well as in the content of the seminars is part of the update concept. Since the update seminars exclusively present product-neutral content and any bias must already be excluded in program and speaker planning, the implementation of the update seminars is based on the guide values ​​to be observed by all participants.

Excerpt from the leading values ​​of med update GmbH

1. med update

med update is the developer and organizer of the update congresses. All update seminars are based on uniform structures and standards for implementation, so that the high standards of quality can be equally reflected in all update seminars. med update offers the scientific leaders and the update team of speakers an optimal organizational framework so that they can focus solely on the scientific content. med update is contractual partner for the industrial sponsors.

2. Neutrality of content

Update seminars are product-neutral events which represent and evaluate the most relevant publications from recognized journals according to the concept. The selection and interpretation of the study results is the sole responsibility of the respective speakers and ultimately the committee of the Scientific Direction. The contents of the lectures may only be viewed by the speakers, the scientific management and med update prior to the update seminar. An influence of third parties on the contents is excluded.

3. Unabhängigkeit in der Programmplanung

Die Programmplanung für die einzelnen Update-Seminare erfolgt jährlich anhand der Evaluationsergebnisse des aktuellen Seminars. In dem Programmplanungsgremium sind neben der Wissenschaftlichen Leitung Mitarbeiter der med update GmbH, Vertreter kooperierender Fachgesellschaften sowie Vertreter der wesentlichen Industriesponsoren präsent. Allein die Wissenschaftliche Leitung ist hinsichtlich Programm- und Referentenplanung entscheidungsberechtigt – Vertreter der Fachgesellschaften und der Industrie sind als Gäste eingeladen. med update konzentriert sich im Wesentlichen auf die Gestaltung der äußeren organisatorischen Rahmenbedingungen und berät die Wissenschaftliche Leitung ausschließlich in Hinsicht auf die einzuhaltenden Update-Standards.

8. Participation

fee All update seminars are chargeable events. This corresponds to the current demand for transparency and independent financial participation of a service used. A direct financing by the industry of the participation fees of physicians resident in Germany (eg via the purchase of »contingent quotas«) is rejected by med update. By means of the participation fees, on average of all update seminars in 2014, over 50 percent financing of the events will be possible.

10. Industrial sponsors

The financing of the update seminars amounts to 30-70% through industrial sponsoring. All sponsors have the opportunity to present their products or services in the exhibitor area, and for reasons of transparency, they are named as supporters on all application and seminar materials. At the program planning meetings (pre- and post-briefing), major industrial sponsors are invited as guests.
