Leadership has emerged as a key competency in Medical Affairs. This is the result of the increasing relevance of the Medical Affairs function in a dynamic healthcare environment with growing external and internal demands. In today’s Pharma industry, business success requires a strong Medical Affairs Leadership.
Existing programs on leadership are useful in providing fundamentals but fall short in addressing the specific challenges and needs of the Medical Affairs professional. With the desire to fill this need and contribute to accelerating the career development of the Medical Affairs professional, IFAPP Academy, in partnership with Tufts Center for the Study of Drug Development (Tufts CSDD), developed an online (e-learning) course guided by the fundamental pillars of leadership applied in a practical manner to the realities of the Medical Affairs world.
