Medical Affairs Support

Medical Affairs Support

The medical department is especially important in pharma or biotech companies (i.e. generics & originators) as they have an interface role.

Medical works closely with Clinical, Regulatory, Safety, Marketing and Market Access. It can be seen as a sort of service provider to all of them. You reach out to them when it comes to medical specialist knowledge about a specific compound or product group. Of course, that also includes external stakeholders. As in all professions, there are certain roles defined in a Medical Affairs department:

  • Medical Director
  • Medical Affairs Manager / Medical Advisor / Medical Manager
  • Medical / Scientific Writer
  • Medical Scientific Liaison

In parts, the tasks assigned to each title are clear. Sometimes though different names of roles describe the same activities within Medical Affairs. Other times, two roles with the same name, do have different activities assigned in two different companies.

Therefore, it is crucial for us to know what the activities are you offer or are looking for. And if you ask us for a freelancer in your medical department, it will make a difference in how good we can do our job in finding that expert if we know what are the must-criteria for you and what would be the cherry on the cake. That way we will be able to deliver matches quickly.
