Become an expert & hone your skills for Pharma, Biotech, Medical & Diagnostic Device launches

Boston Program: October 28-29, 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.

Whether you’re preparing for your first launch or your 5th – big company or small – this program will prove useful, as successful launches in this new era will only be possible if we upgrade existing best practices, together.

Each MasterClass is designed to have a maximum ratio of 8 participants per instructor. We are limiting participation to 50-75 maximum per city, and are expecting delegates from approximately 20-25 different companies per city.

Each program is carefully designed to maximize best practice sharing and cross-industry networking, and will include access to a post-meeting online workspace for continued collaboration with the learning cohort for 1 year, at no additional cost.

Instruction will include a limited number of plenary sessions focused on general launch principles that apply to all types of launches. The majority of program time (>65%) will be spent in small group interactive workshops and table discussions, where participants will have the opportunity to join peers with specific interests and needs, such as launch planning for big pharma, first time launches, or medical/diagnostic device launches.
