In the Perspectives series, MAPS Americas Region President, John Pracyk, MD, PhD, MBA speaks with leaders from Johnson & Johnson, where John is Integrated Leader, Preclinical & Clinical Research and Medical Affairs at DePuy Synthes Spine (a J&J company). Rather than publishing each interview separately, John has chosen to organize these interviews by topic, distilling the opinions of J&J thought leaders to demonstrate consensus or offer distinct view- points on issues of importance for the practice of Medical Affairs.
Success in Medical Affairs can take as many forms as the professionals it attracts. In this second article in the series, John collects the opinions of J&J leaders describing what they see as the keys to carving out a path to success in whatever form that takes.
The views expressed in this article represent the opinions of the individual contributors only. None of the contributors is speaking on behalf of any Johnson & Johnson-affiliated organization.
