N1 - Funding Information: Each year, Mayo Clinic College of Medicine School of CME (Rochester, Minn) conducts comprehensive internal medicine CME courses, some of which receive financial support from industry. Over the years, directors of these courses have received mixed feedback from participants regarding industry support. To better understand physician preferences and attitudes regarding industry support of CME programs, an anonymous survey of physicians attending 4 Mayo Clinic internal medicine CME courses was conducted in 2004. Pharmaceutical and other health care-related companies financially support 2 of the courses (Mayo Internal Medicine Board Review and Mayo Clinical Reviews) with unrestricted grants and in accordance with Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) guidelines. Financial support is given directly to the course organizers and is used to defray the costs of the courses; the companies have no role in planning or conducting the courses. These courses allow industry-sponsored exhibits adjacent to the meeting room. The other 2 courses (Mayo Selected Topics in Internal Medicine and Mayo Practice of Internal Medicine) are not supported by industry and have no exhibitors.
