Careers in Medical Affairs at ICON Biotech
Medical Affairs provides contracted medical services for the implementation and conduct of clinical trials and serves as primary medical contact to the sponsor, investigative sites, and project team, as well as serving as liaisons to clinical specialists and thought leaders. Medical Monitoring activities and a thorough medical data review during the conduct of the study are integral parts to ensure the safety of the patients and the data integrity of the trial.
The global Biotech Medical Affairs group is composed of a highly trained medically diverse group, covering many medical specialities/experiences. The group is highly collaborative and collectively works towards the goal of protecting the safety and welfare of clinical trial subjects and protecting the medical and scientific integrity of the trial. There is excellent mentorship and opportunities for growth and development as individuals hone their skills in providing medical services. For IBT, the pharmaceutical sponsors often do not have as many internal medical resources as larger pharmaceutical sponsors. The IBT Medical Affairs group often assists in all the development and monitoring steps involved in the clinical development of a compound and utilises their broad medical expertise individually and as a team to provide the support needed.
Here at ICON, we support professional development through strong internal and external training opportunities. There is a comprehensive onboarding training programme facilitated by our Quality & Training Advisors and People Leaders. Ongoing training is also facilitated by monthly global Medical Affairs meetings which include training sessions and smaller, regular meetings. A candidate successful within the Medical Affairs department should have effective communication, adaptability, collaboration, strong relationship management skills and be client-oriented.
