I am looking for a full time directorship in medical affairs, or similar position, for a Pharmaceutical, Biotech or Medical Device company whose location will allow me to continue living in Center City Philadelphia, PA.  I am board certified in Pain Management and in Emergency Medicine.  I have minors in Orthopedic Surgery, Gastroenterology, Infectious Disease, Rheumatology and Immunology.  

PA doesn't offer a nonclinical medical license so in January I began an at least a year long process to reactivate my clinical medical license.  I have found that most companies want the physician to have an active license.  If you are a company that wisely doesn't require that I have an active clinical license for a non-clinical position, then I can apply sooner than later.  And, of course, the position must require an MD degree and nothing less, in order to offer an adequate baseline salary in the neighborhood of $200k.

Does the role you are recruiting for fit my above desires?

My current time table includes actively looking that started in January after year end bonuses were given out and resignation letters were then given in exchange. 

I do hope to hear from you as soon as possible if you feel you have a potential position.  So much so that you can call me directly on my personal cell phone at 1-215-432-8945.
