Educational Grants

Nevro believes that both healthcare professionals and patients benefit from a wide variety of educational opportunities that support advancements in medical technology. Nevro is proud to be able to provide grants to support educational activities and programs that help healthcare professionals enhance the care of their patients. We prioritize support in areas of scientific interest to the company that are intended to contribute to improvement in healthcare provider knowledge.

Every grant we award is based on 1) the merit of the educational program, as described in the submission, and 2) alignment with internal company policies. All grants are provided in compliance with the published codes that are standard industry practices (e.g. AdvaMed, Eucomed) and our internal policies.

No award is determined or influenced by the volume, or value of any business that could be potentially generated by the grant requester. The grant requester is not obligated to purchase, use, recommend, or arrange for the use of any product or service of Nevro.
