During the course of the fellowship, they will develop functional expertise by supporting multiple cross-functional teams, and assume increasing responsibility for independent projects as the fellowship proceeds.. Candidates will also have opportunities to advance their academic skill set as an adjunct faculty member at MCPHS.
This two-year fellowship focused on Scientific Communications and Medical Affairs will include cross-functional work and experience in Scientific Communications, Medical Affairs Operations, Independent Medical Education and Medical Science Liaison roles. The fellow will contribute to various Medical Affairs projects including publication planning and execution, Medical Affairs strategic planning, analysis of clinical data, etc., for both mature and investigational products. At the completion of the fellowship, the fellow will have an in-depth understanding of the various roles within Medical Affairs and how the teams work together to accomplish overall Medical Affairs strategies and tactics.
