Medical Science Liaison Management is a new profession in the pharmaceutical field. Over the past few years, stricter compliance regulations from the USA affecting the pharmaceutical industry have come into effect. The product is not at the forefront anymore, rather the scientific information, therapy options, and therapeutic principles. Pharmaceutical representatives cannot perform various tasks anymore as a result of these guidelines. A large number of job advertisements in the German-speaking world remain unapplied for because there are not enough Medical Science Liaison managers. On the other hand, natural scientists would like to break into the pharmaceutical field, but lack pharmaceutical knowledge and have no training in Medical Science Liaison Management.
