Scientific Experts (SEs) have special needs for in-depth and groundbreaking 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 captures 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 craft the future of healthcare with needed information that addresses meaningful clinical and scientific questions.
Develop mutually beneficial relationships with external clients and internal business partners
The ML will spend between 70-80% of their time committed to developing relationships and interfacing with external clients –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. A meaningful aspect of this work will be to connect the SE with other Lilly resources (e.g., Outcomes Research, Discovery, Scientists, 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). They 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 knowledge
The ML will be required to maintain their technical expertise across a broad oncology portfolio and wide range of tumors in order to engage in deep scientific discussions with SEs. The ML will be expected to engage in continuous learning within the therapeutic area they represent. They 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 themselves as a reliable, trusted, resource of accurate, up-to-date, medical and scientific knowledge requested and desired by their clients. They 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 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, 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. 48174BR
