Workshop: The Strategic Role of the Medical Science Liaison during a Product’s Life Cycle
A day-and-a-half training to learn and experience the role of a MSL
The role of a Medical Science Liaison (MSL) is to be learnt on the job on a day-by day basis. It is differently structured from company to company, and represents a complex, yet fascinating position.
Even when you have been working as a MSL for some time and you have learned a lot from colleagues and technical courses, it is very important to have the opportunity to discuss about the different situations to be handled, which is precisely what we intend to do through this hands-on and captivating course.
After a brief lecturing session, participants will take part in practical exercises in which, for example, they will be guided in the organization of an advisory board or in simulating some of the activities of a MSL during a given product life cycle.
- Knowing your centres (mapping & profiling)
- Disease awareness
- Insights collection
- Advisory boards
- Compassionate use
- Data dissemination
- Cross-functional activity
- Real-World Evidence
- Training (internal and external)
The trainers will share with participants their fifteen-years’ experience and their passion for the role of MSL!
The course will be in Italian.
