Boston Program: November 11-12, 2024

WHAT IS A MEDICAL AFFAIRS MASTERCLASS TRAINING PROGRAM?

Immersive, situational-based, two-day training programs focused on key competencies of Medical Affairs that MAPS deems critical for success.

A course designed for experienced Medical Affairs professionals who are responsible for, or involved in, the delivery of company-led or independent external education.

 The majority of program time (>65%) will be spent in small group interactive workshops and table discussions. Class size will be limited to 50-75 participants.

The course will explore this important topic in detail through a blend of expert-led presentations, discussion sessions, and peer-to-peer interaction, including networking. 

External education from Medical Affairs, whether independent or company-led, is critical to ensure that patients receive optimal care in a world of rapidly advancing science and medicine. External education helps healthcare professionals remain current in their knowledge and supports the development and maintenance of clinical skills and competencies in order to deliver the highest-quality patient care.
