Pharmaceutical Medical Affairs Jobs

What is medical affairs?

The role of medical affairs is to educate and provide medical and scientific information to physicians, key opinion leaders, regulatory agencies, professional groups and healthcare professionals. The purpose is to enhance a company’s reputation in the scientific industry. By complementing the work of research and development departments, medical affairs professionals advise on the best use of a company’s products, therapies, devices, technology and diagnostics. There is huge opportunity for career progression within medical affairs.

What do medical affairs jobs involve?

Medical affairs professionals must ensure that companies market products in a fair and ethical manner, ensuring that they also make a profit. Medical affairs roles are often varied and dynamic, and candidates must bridge the gap between research, clinical development, scientific publications, health outcomes, biostatistics and medical education. 

Working in medical affairs involves supporting and planning the research, development and launch of pharmaceutical, biotechnology or medical device products. Jobs in this field typically span marketing, medical and business intelligence functions. The diversity of roles gives individuals the opportunity to either pursue a career in management, or transfer their skills into specific medical positions such as medical scientist or medical liaison. 

Candidates applying for medical affairs jobs must be meticulous and organised because they are expected to juggle priorities and workload to keep up with the demand and responsibilities of their job. To be successful they must have strong networking, relationship-building and presentation skills as many of their responsibilities involve communicating with key personnel in pharmaceutical companies, healthcare centres and hospitals.
