My Syneos Health Story:

What do you enjoy most about working here?

I enjoy collaborating with my team and with health care providers to ultimately improve patient outcomes. The Syneos Health value "Passionate to change lives", genuinely means that patients are thought of as family, colleagues, or neighbors rather than numbers. I feel like I'm doing important work that truly makes a difference.

How is working here better and different than where you have worked before?

Syneos Health believes in a culture where team members can thrive and develop. I appreciate the emphasis placed on valuing and developing their employees. Each team member is encouraged to have a voice - to share their thoughts and ideas and to ask questions on a regular basis. Our leaders communicate frequently and transparently and provide opportunities for leadership and contributions to projects.   

What do you enjoy most about being a Medical Science Liaison?

I really enjoy serving as a medical information specialist and helping equip providers with the resources they need to save and improve patients' lives. I also enjoy the continuous learning that is necessary for my specific therapeutic area. Syneos Health's partnership with our client provides a unique position to provide treatment for all stages of COVID-19 including prophylaxis. The public health crisis COVID-19 has created is a serious and unique medical challenge and an ongoing health threat that I can help fight. 

What advice would you give people hoping to break into the industry and become a Medical Science Liaison?

It can take time and patience to break into the industry and become a Medical Science Liaison (MSL). Know and be able to speak to why you are interested in becoming an MSL and why you would be a good fit for the role (in general, and specifically for the therapeutic area and the organization you apply to). Network and understand how current MSLs arrived at their roles. Know how to tie your education, experiences, and skillsets to the attributes the organization is looking for. Apply for roles if they interest you, even if you don't meet every criteria listed. Be very prepared for the interviews you are offered.

Which Syneos Health value resonates with you the most and why?

"Collaborate to deliver solutions" resonates with me the most because I have the opportunity to work with a talented and diverse team every day, as we strive to provide the highest level of value to our clients.
