Medical Affairs

Medical Affairs

Product development never rests. With new sophisticated molecules, medical devices, and even gene therapies, there is a higher demand for clinical and drug information, creating new career opportunities for pharmacists in the growing area of medical affairs. To quote Albert Einstein, “Make everything as simple as possible, but not simpler.” Medical Affairs teams are the medical face of the company and their value lies their ability to disseminate information as accurately and precisely as possible without changing its meaning.

The medical affairs sector as a whole is growing in popularity, according toKyle Kennedy, vice president of customer strategy with the Medical Affairs Company (TMAC), “I have always said a position in medical affairs is the best job in the pharmaceutical sector. You learn so many skills that prepare you to be successful in other positions in the industry. In medical affairs, you have opportunities to work in or with clinical trial activities, medical information, competitive intelligence, pharmacovigilance, medical writing, health outcomes, scientific platform communications, and key opinion leader development, and you may even be able to move over to the commercial side of industry, such as marketing.”

The Medical Affairs Professional Society(MAPS) is the premier non-profit global society of medical affairs professionals across a spectrum of fields, experience, and locales. The European branch of MAPS is headed up byEMEA President, Danie du PlessisMD, MBA.MAPS Vaulthosts an array of valuable resources addressing critical issues for medical affairs professionals, from current trends in medical affairs to changes in government laws that may impact our profession.

The future in terms of job growth looks positive for the sector,William Soliman, PhD, chair of the Accreditation Council for Medical Affairs says, “Medical affairs has grown over 300% globally in the last decade and it will continue to do so, there are many more career opportunities than ever before.”
