Medical Affairs Team Build-Out

Finding and Placing Complete Medical Affairs Teams

Permanent, Contract, or Hybrid Teams

Drug development never rests, and as a result pharmaceutical, biotechnology, medical device, and diagnostics companies are increasingly in need of Medical Science Liaisons (MSLs) to convey scientific information to a variety of key stakeholders (e.g., physicians, payers) and to acquire medical insights from Key Opinion Leaders (KOLs). Additionally, knowledge in therapeutic areas, medicine, and science has grown exponentially, and as a result, there is a more urgent need for professionals who can deliver scientific/clinical information accurately and effectively.

TriNet Pharma excels at Medical Affairs team build-out. We can place teams of permanent, full-time MSLs, teams of contract MSLs, and hybrid teams (permanent full-time and contract mix). No matter the team type, we can customize a plan to meet your company’s specific requirements. This includes finding candidates to fill other critical Medical Affairs roles (e.g., Clinical Research Physicians, Medical Advisors, Medical Monitors, and Medical Affairs Directors).

Regardless of whether everyone on a Medical Affairs team is going to be permanent full-time or working in a contract capacity, potential talent must possess the appropriate degrees/certifications in science/medicine, a breadth of knowledge within a therapeutic area, and biotechnology or pharmaceutical industry experience.
