  • Medical Affairs

    Medical affairs has become an invaluable strategic function in the healthcare industry in recent years. With increasing pressures from regulators and shift towards real-world evidence, pharmaceutical companies are continually growing their medical affairs teams so it is no wonder that demand for medical affairs professionals has increased dramatically.

    Clinical trials play an integral part in the establishment of clinical evidence, but to ensure testing is conducted according to strict guidelines qualified clinical research professionals are needed. Due to increasing number and complexity of research activities, the demand for clinical research professionals exceeds the supply and this trend is likely to remain.
