Pharmaceutical sales representatives should not be allowed to access academic medical centers, according to a report released Tuesday by a task force convened by the Pew Charitable Trusts. "However, faculty may invite pharmaceutical scientists for specific educational or scientific discussions that do not involve marketing of a specific product," the report said. The Association of American Medical Colleges did not endorse the report but had representatives on the task force and offered guidance for the report.
