Job Simulation Series: Medical Science Liaison

InterSECT Job Simulations are like advanced informational interviews. Join us in July to find out more.

Providing Scientific Informtation to Healthcare Professionals

Medical Science Liaisons (MSLs) play a vital role in the healthcare industry, most often in a pharmaceutical, biotechnology, or medical device company. They bring advanced scientific training in a specialized area and build on that body of scientific knowledge to develop key relationships with doctors, healthcare professionals (HCP), and other decision makers within the medical community. MSLs are responsible for learning as much as they can about the science behind medical innovations, communicating the information to decision makers within the medical community, and maintaining relationships with these colleagues to keep open lines of communication between stakeholders.

In this month's simulation series we will explore Communicating Relevant Scientific Information About a Specific Disease or Therapeutic Area to a Healthcare Professional. Complete the simulation online prior to this session, to receive feedback on your work from two WashU alumni and MSL professionals.
