There are only two weeks to go until the 31 October deadline, don't miss it -  get your entry in now!

Highlighting this important area of work within the pharmaceutical industry, the new Medical & Scientific Excellence Awards are designed to recognise the outstanding achievements of medical and scientific professionals.

Described as  "filling a long-standing gap" in the industry, the competition has attracted entries from a wide array of companies, including Boehringer Ingelheim, Novo Nordisk, GSK, Shire, Eisai, Teva and Lunbeck to name just a few.

“Don't miss the 31 October deadline,” says PharmaTimes business manager and competition lead Luci Sargood. ‘’With entry options for new, experienced and senior Medical Science Liaisons, Medical Information Professionals and Medical/Scientific Advisors – wherever you are in your career, there is a category for you.’’

The competition is free to enter and competitors will have the chance to test themselves against the best-of-the-best and gain invaluable insights and feedback from judges.

More than a competition, it’s also a unique learning and development opportunity, with on-the-day training sessions from industry experts.

So don’t delay, if applicable talk to your line-manager and get your entry in now - the deadline is 31 October.

The assessment day will take place on Thursday 6 December in London and will be followed by the awards ceremony in the evening.
