|Scientific Experts (SEs) have special needs for in-depth and cutting edge information, because these health care professionals design and implement novel research and educate colleagues and students. The Medical Liaison (ML) program is specifically designed to meet these needs through a field-based group of medical professionals with deep content knowledge about Lilly and competitor products and current issues in the therapeutic areas they represent. The ML also gathers feedback and insights from SEs, to better inform Lilly’s research and potentially influence overall strategic direction of the company. By providing answers that matter and facilitating scientific exchange between industry and the academic community, the ML’s have the opportunity to shape the future of healthcare with needed information that addresses important clinical and scientific questions. This territory encompasses the state of Texas and southern Georgia. |
The primary purpose of the Medical Liaison is to provide medical support for critical US launches in breast cancer aligned with US tumor team strategy. The Medical Liaison will interact with both breast cancer specialists and general oncologists treating breast cancer at large community and network sites within their geography. Their primary objective will be to provide relevant up to date clinical and scientific data on breast cancer in response to unsolicited questions, provide medical support for relevant clinical trials, collect clinical insights, provide medical education for HCPs as required and support strategic initiatives as defined by the US tumor team. The Medical Liaison will communicate and share information regularly with the medical scientific liaison in their geography.
Develop mutually beneficial relationships with external experts and internal business partners
The ML will spend between 70-80% of their time devoted to developing relationships and interfacing with external experts - SEs/educators/investigators - within a defined geography. The ML will serve as the major representatives of Lilly for these health care professionals, providing deep and advanced disease state and product information as well as facilitating the work of the SE when it aligns with Lilly's mission. An important aspect of this work will be to connect the SE with other Lilly resources (e.g., Outcomes Research, DiscoveryScientists, Clinical Research Physicians,) whenever appropriate. The ML will be the primary point person liaising between Lilly resources or internal business partners (e.g., Clinical Research Physicians, Medical Information Associates, Corporate Medical teams). He/She will also report clinical insights and unanswered customer questions they have received from external SEs to the medical and brand teams.
Understand and effectively communicate current scientific and clinical knowledge
The ML will be required to maintain their technical expertise, through continuous learning,within the breast cancer field to engage in deep scientific discussions with SEs. He/She will attend appropriate scientific meetings, conduct routine literature searches, and will be expected to communicate regularly with each other to assure that the entire group benefits from individual learning whenever it is relevant. As a result, the ML will establish himself/herself as a reliable, trusted, resource of accurate, up-to-date, medical and scientific knowledge requested and desired by their clients. He/She will respond in a timely way to personal or electronic inquiries with any available information which may include reprints or posters, medical letters, literature citations, access to internal and external experts, slides and other teaching-related material.
Effectively manage administrative activities
The ML job entails not only scientific, clinical and customer expertise, but also requires the ability to understand and effectively utilize approved resources to fulfill administrative, procedural, and legal requirements in order to address the customer needs. These activities may include proficiency in computer skills and database entry (VEEVA, LillyNet, S5, Microsoft Office, Ovid,), continual compliance of all procedural requirements of the role (i.e. good documentation practices, standards and procedures,) and appropriate utilization and best practice sharing of available resources. 33184BR
