What makes this training unique is that it is facilitated by those that have actually been or are currently MSL managers, have hired MSLs, interviewed MSLs, and reviewed MSL CVs. The trainers have direct experience on what makes a candidate successful, and what does not.

The program will be facilitated by Dr. Samuel Jacob Dyer, author of the best selling book "The Medical Science Liaison Career Guide: How to Break into Your First Role" who will share his years of experience as a hiring manager at some of the world’s top pharmaceutical companies and as Chairman of the Board for the MSL Society. Dr. Dyer has coached, interviewed, and reviewed the CVs of countless MSL candidates. His insights and guidance have resulted in numerous candidates successfully breaking into their first MSL role.

Furthermore, the training will feature current MSL hiring managers who will provide their perspective on what it takes to successfully break into your first role and insights on what they are looking for in a candidate (scroll down the page to see their profiles). You will also have the opportunity to ask ALL your questions.
