With the industry continuing to benefit from the fast pace of technological advancements, the growing influx of venture capital, and an expanding global marketplace, 2019 will bring greater demand for the top leaders needed to catapult life sciences companies forward.

It isn’t a simple calculation to entice talented people to switch sectors. But savvy recruiters are targeting candidates based on the realities of this marketplace.

  • It would be a luxury to be part of the group of financially privileged physicians and buy all the information sources we each believe may have importance. I am continuing the shock of penury most of us have lived in. I am at the end of my career. Having cancer interrupt the last few years is more than inconvenient. There is no rehab. There is no reliable insurance for disability even though I

What is part of the conversation is the need for mature clinicians to aid with the development of acumen by our teams of providers. (I am not a provider, nor a 2 year MBA, sic, read fishwrap). I am always glad to help…I can no longer afford to pay for someone else profit.

    I, as a physician, always felt that I worked for patient’s interests,not money.

    May you all be safe and as well as possible.
