Each of your three rotations will be spent in a different Medical Affairs (or related) team within your local business so you'll quickly build up a wide range of skills and experiences.
In the Medical Affairs rotation, you'll likely work in a customer-facing role. This will give you invaluable first-hand experience of working out in the field, interacting closely with Healthcare Professionals and clinics to share important information with them about our products and to deliver excellent customer service.

All this calls for strong analytical skills, an ability to work cross-functionally and a good understanding of our patients.
