Focus Area Working Group

The goals of the Medical Affairs Professional Society Compliance Focus Area Working Group are to create a community that advances our role as fully integrated strategic business partners to promote the growth of Compliance and Medical Affairs Professionals within the life sciences sector worldwide; to develop our Compliance community within MAPS to become the premier global destination of choice for Compliance and related Medical Affairs Professionals, noting the synergies and close working relationships across the teams; and to catalyze our individual personal leadership development and professional career advancement. ​ 

Activities: We will organize Compliance-related workshops for MAPS meetings in the North America, APAC (Asia Pacific – China/Japan), and EMEA (Europe, Middle East, Asia) regions. We develop original content for webinars, podcasts, eLearning courses and white papers. In addition, the working group will periodically contribute cogent and timely content on the Compliance sector for the MAPS publication, Elevate magazine. Most importantly, we will provide a supportive resource for all Compliance and related Medical Affairs Professionals. ​
