Is a Career in Medical Affairs Right for You?

October 28, 2020

4:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. EST

Via Zoom

Medical affairs serves as a bridge between the pharmaceutical, biotech and medical device industries and the broader medical community. Those who work within medical affairs are uniquely tasked with maintaining external relationships with physicians, payors, medical societies, and patient groups and bringing these rich insights back to their respective companies. In this customer-facing role, they respond to medical inquiries, support clinical trials, build strong relationships with therapeutic experts, and engage in broad scientific discussions around patient outcomes.

Medical affairs is a fast-growing industry that draws individuals from across life sciences, healthcare and business professions. Join three Drexel alumni working in medical affairs as they offer insights into the field, share their individualized career paths and explain how COVID-19 has affected their daily roles.

This FREE event is sponsored by the Alumni in Health Sciences Professional Affinity Group.

Indigenous Peoples Day

CNHP Observes Indigenous Peoples' Day

CNHP's Board of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion would like to acknowledge Indigenous Peoples' Day, held on the 2nd Monday of every October.

Indigenous Peoples' Day recognizes that the Americas were not “discovered” but colonized. While the United Nations declared August 9th as International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples, individual states and cities in the United States have been replacing Columbus Day with Indigenous Peoples' Day. The National Museum of the American Indian is helping us about Rethinking How We Celebrate American History.

We invite the CNHP community to reflect on the land that we currently occupy, originally home to members of the Lenape tribe.

Drexel University will be closed on Monday, October 12 in observance of Indigenous Peoples' Day.
