What is Medical Affairs?

What is Medical Affairs?

Medical Affairs sits within commercial organisations but is concerned with post-approval activities. With pressure from regulatory authorities to have a department separate from commercial activities, medical affairs grew as a sector. Medical Affairs roles are there to provide scientific and clinical support for commercial products. Some activities you may be involved in are: managing key thought leader relationships, working with data and publishing reports from clinical trials, working on research initiatives outside of labelled and marketed indications, presenting educational information, providing product safety information for healthcare professionals (e.g., physicians, pharmacists, nurses and NHS managers) and to patients.  Information and advice are based upon published literature, confidential company data and experience. You work closely with brand teams to approve the literature and ensure it meets industry standards and is well balanced and up to date.

Medical Affairs teams are the medical face of the company. Their value lies in their scientific and clinical expertise. Strong relationships with communities and academic physicians are often the aim of the medical affairs team because it allows information to flow freely between the medical community and the organisation and because it’s remit is positioned outside of commercial activities the team can help external bodies to navigate their way through internal departments
