The finals day will see the medical affairs professionals compete against each other in a number of different challenges – devised by industry experts to test their knowledge and ability.

Marion Grapes, Principal Global Medical Information Specialist at LEO Pharma and member of the Executive Steering Group says, "The assessment day will provide a tangible personal training and development opportunity. We are looking forward to a very busy (and fun!) day packed with sharing best practice."

The candidates will compete across several different categories in their bid to be crowned the winner. Categories include New, Experienced, and Senior Medical Science Liaison of the Year, as well as categories for Medical Information and Medical/Scientific Advisors.

The gala dinner and awards ceremony will be an excellent networking opportunity for everyone as we celebrate the very best medical & scientific professionals in the industry. There is also a wide spread of companies who will be attending, including names such as Boehringer Ingelheim, Shire, Novo Nordisk and Abbvie. This year’s competition is supported by MAPS (The Medical Affairs Professional Society) and PIPA (Pharmaceutical Information & Pharmacovigilance Association).

Executive Steering Group member Jim McNulty says that the PharmaTimes awards programme “offers an excellent opportunity for public recognition for high performing individuals within the Medical affairs function – all too often excellent performance goes unnoticed!”
