This 2-year fellowship provides an opportunity to develop an understanding of the functional areas of Medical Communications and Field Medical. Fellows will be afforded the opportunity to build a strong foundation from their first-year experiences in medical communications that they can leverage as they transition into a field based role during the second year of their fellowship. Throughout the course of this fellowship, individuals will not only acquire disease state knowledge, but also master clinical data regarding Bristol-Myers Squibb and competitor oncology products. Fellows will collaborate extensively with a cross-functional matrix (e.g. Legal/Regulatory, Marketing, Medical, and R&D) through leading fellow-driven projects with demonstrable business impact.
