Medical Science Liaisons (MSLs) and Sales Reps: Understanding the Divide

mslMSL Institute partners with Pharmacertify to create this eLearning module on differentiating field-scientific teams from field-commercial teams, and how these teams diverge and converge when interacting with healthcare providers (HCP). The module covers the federal policy on the scientific exchange of information between an MSL and HCP, and how the government views MSL interactions with HCPs differently than those of sales representatives. Topics include Policies and guidance governing the divide between the field-medical and field-sales roles, and Myths that surround what MSLs can and cannot do. To learn more, and purchase this module for your organization, please visit our strategic partner Pharmacertify’s website.
