At Hudson, we understand the unique combination of education, experience and personal qualities it takes to be a successful medical science liaison (MSL). These essential players in the pharmaceutical and biotech industries must hold advanced degrees (Pharm.D., Ph.D, M.D.) and demonstrate an aptitude for cultivating long-term relationships with key opinion leaders in major medical centers, academic institutions and research centers.
A medical science liaison requires a clinical understanding of the underlying science; benefits and issues relating to medical device, pharmaceutical, or biotech products throughout their lifecycles; as well as current knowledge of the broader research in all relevant clinical areas. The MSL position also requires adept communication and relationship-building skills, as medical science liaisons foster partnerships that advance the science and spread awareness of a product’s value for patients while also maintaining the respect and trust of key influencers.
