    How to Secure a Captivating Career as an MSL

    How to Secure a Captivating Career as an MSL

    The Medical Science Liaison (MSL) in the pharmaceutical industry is a popular position for physicians who wish to leave clinical practice. This is true because it is possible to qualify for the job regardless of the extent of training (i.e., whether residency-trained or board certified, or not) or specialty; it does not require special certifications or degrees (beyond a medical degree); and it provides a moderate amount of flexibility to work part of the time from home. However, it often involves traveling to meet with clients up to 60% of the time.
    John created a six-lesson course called How to Secure a Career as a Medical Science Liaison for the Nonclinical Career Academy. And he has taken excerpts from that course for PNC Podcast Episodes 276 and 277. By presenting the pros and cons, and an overview of the steps you can take to prepare for a job as an MSL, you will gain a much deeper understanding of the position and whether to pursue it.
    He also goes into detail about common tactics used to find a nonclinical career, including converting your CV to a resumé, engaging mentors; networking effectively, creating a LinkedIn profile, and identifying professional organizations that can hasten your progress. The course can be found at: https://nonclinicalphysicians.com/mslcourse.

Best place to start for non-clinical career hunters

I have learned so much from Dr. Jurica and his podcasts. They are really informative and cover many inspiring stories of doctors who have successfully transitioned out of clinical medicine. I also recommend his Nonclinical Career Academy. It can really help you hone your career search down to the field that is best for YOU!! To top is all off John is incredibly accomplished himself. He is self-made with tons of experieince in many fields. He is an excellent tour guide through the world of nonclinical careers.
