Medical Science Liaisons work in an advocacy role to support the

commercial development of medical therapies and pharmaceutical drug

products to key physician customers. They are responsible for

participating in clinical studies; establishing strong

relationships with their target customers such as clinicians and

key medical leaders; answering clinical inquiries; and

participating in medical education and the provission of

product-specific scientific information to customers. MSLs work on

behalf of pharmacuetical or biotechnology companies who generally

require an undergraduate degree in the field of applied science,

advanced scientific training and 2-5 years of clinical experience.

Their salary is usually in the 6-figure range and some are allowed

to work from a home-based office. (author Rosie StJulian)
