The Managed Care Medical Affairs fellowship is a two-year program based in South San Francisco, CA that will expose the fellow to a broad range of corporate and field-based US Medical Affairs activities with a focus on managed care. Primary goals of the fellowship are to provide the fellow with a thorough knowledge of key access strategies and to develop foundational scientific and professional skill sets required for a successful career within the pharmaceutical industry.
US Medical Affairs (Managed Care Focus) - Year 1 The fellow will learn how to communicate clinical information on our marketed products and compounds in late development to health care professionals and managed care entities in a regulated environment. More specifically, the fellow will correspond with external customers involved in evidence?based healthcare decisions including but not limited to managed care organizations, private and government health plans, third party payers, pharmacy benefit managers, specialty pharmacies, compendia publishers, guideline bodies and technology assessment entities. The fellow is expected to:
Evaluate and interpret medical literature

Managed Care Liaison (MCL) - Year 2 The fellow will also have an opportunity to develop an appreciation of the MCL role during the second year of the fellowship.
