The Medical Science Liaison (MSL) is responsible for identifying disease and product related medical needs in a defined geography. The primary role of the MSL is to develop relationships and maintain contacts with Thought Leaders (TL) and Healthcare Providers (HCP) within their healthcare system. The purpose of interactions is to engage in meaningful scientific exchange that will ensure patients have access to client medicines, to ensure their safe and appropriate use through peer to peer discussions aligned with medical strategies and needs expressed by external stakeholders. The scientific dialogue focuses on scientific/clinical information around disease management, treatment landscape, and client products in a fair and balanced way and includes appropriate clinical and value related discussions. TLs may include nationally and regionally recognized scientific and clinical leaders, medical advisors to managed care providers and committees, and HCPs active in addressing patient advocacy issues.
MSL delivers presentations to health care decision makers responding to unsolicited questions using relevant and approved materials. MSL may support company initiated trials by interacting with primary investigators, assisting in site identification and screenings, and delivering disease education using approved resources. MSLs may also support data generation activities including participation in reviews of investigator initiated proposals.
Other activities may include identification and training of contracted speakers or internal team members if aligned with medical plan and product life cycle needs. MSL will also identify, collect, and communicate insights to address competitive medical information in addition to insights on trends and changes affecting the regulatory and payer environment used to develop medical strategies.
