Pharmaceutical Medicine or ‘Pharma’ has long been a popular next step for doctors seeking alternative careers.

But we see doctors struggle with the same things in their journey to Pharma which can take YEARS.

  • Understanding what industry is
  • Knowing how to pitch yourself appropriately for different roles in Pharma
  • Knowing what GCP is and the basics of running studies
  • Knowing how to network to uncover the pharma roles that aren’t widely advertised
  • Knowing how to prepare effectively for interviews and presentation
  • Transitioning to a commercial and leadership mindset needed to thrive in the sector
  • Adapting to a VERY new way of working once managing to get a job in Pharma


The reason behind this, isn’t that most doctors aren’t good enough to develop a career in Pharma.

It’s a lack of mentorship, guidance, network and preparation in getting there.


Therefore we’ve lined up an excitingly diverse panel of highly experienced doctors currently working in Pharma, who have:

  • tackled that career gauntlet themselves,
  • developed a breadth of experience in the sector and
  • have mentored other doctors in developing their pharma careers

Between them, they’ve worked or currently working at:

Novartis, AstraZeneca, Kymab, Schering, Novo Nordisk and more..!

So we prescribe:

This LIVE Pharma Panel where you will hear about our panelists career journeys and unique insights into working in pharma alongside learning:

  • What breadth of opportunities for doctors are available in the wider pharma sector
  • How to position yourself as a prime candidate that recruiters and hiring managers couldn’t refuse
  • Top tips on nailing those applications and interviews
  • How to prepare yourself for developing a flourishing career as a Pharmaceutical Medicine doctor
  • How to uncover more accessible pharma opportunities overseas if you really want to get your foot in the door quickly


This is also your chance to submit your BURNING questions to our panel regarding developing a pharma career as a doctor.

Is the grass really greener?

The wealth of knowledge you will receive from attending this roundtable will undoubtedly save you time, money and heartache – so don’t miss this if you intend to move over to Pharmaceutical Medicine as a doctor in 2023.
