Last week Only Medics held the pre-event for their industry recognised and innovative Physician to Pharma event.

The day consisted of presentations and various informative activities with an industry expert. This year featured Dr Sheuli Porkess, an experienced Medical Affairs Physician and currently Head of Medical Affairs at the Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry. She has held senior medical leadership roles in the UK and Europe for numerous pharmaceutical companies, including Almirall and Boehringer Ingelheim. She is a Fellow of the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Medicine in the UK.

Joe Haskell, Only Medics Managing Consultant goes into more detail:

“The Physician 2 Pharma Preparation Day is a brilliant chance for NHS physicians to fact find, ask questions and explore options in pharma with an industry expert.
The half day event includes a presentation from an experienced in industry medical director, question and answer session and a chance to meet the Only Medics team.
It is rare that individuals looking to make a career change into the pharmaceutical industry are able to have the chance to get clarity on how best to approach their job search, what career options are available to physicians and what companies look for in new recruits. This day along with the main Physician 2 Pharma event gives these individuals a helping hand to gain that pivotal first role within the pharmaceutical industry.”

Dr Sheuli Porkess, had the following to say about the day:

“It’s always really rewarding to be able to help other doctors learn about careers in the pharmaceutical industry. For the right doctor, the industry can be a great place to work but it is a different environment to clinical work. Those doctors who spend time and effort in researching the industry, understanding pharmaceutical medicine and meeting doctors already in the industry will be able to understand the range of career opportunities as well as the challenges. Events such as the pre-day allow doctors who are thinking about moving into the industry to learn more about the reality of medical roles in the industry and to make plans for a successful transition into the industry.”
