For the first time, the program has been expanded to newly-hired MSL Managers.

RALEIGH, N.C., Dec. 27, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Medical Science Liaison Society (MSL Society), the only 501c3 non-profit organization exclusively dedicated to the global medical science liaison (MSL) profession, has launched the second year of its acclaimed Medical Science Liaison Mentor/Mentee Program.

In the program, a newly-hired MSL with less than two years of experience is formally matched with an experienced pair of MSL co-mentors for the purpose of professional development and knowledge sharing.  The group mentoring approach affords opportunities for mentees not only to benefit from mentors but also from peer mentees.

Building on the success of the first mentor program last year that consisted of 11 newly-hired MSLs and four experienced MSL mentors, the second year of the program has been greatly expanded to include 30 newly-hired MSLs who were matched with 10 experienced MSL mentors.

In addition, for the first time, the program has been expanded to newly-hired MSL Managers with less than one year of management experience. In total, five newly-hired MSL Managers were matched with two experienced MSL Manager mentors.

Both the MSL and MSL manager programs last for one year and are free. Mentors and mentees must be current members of the MSL Society to participate. The programs are created and managed by Christine Vaupel, PhD, Head of Medical Affairs at Navigate BioPharma, a Novartis Subsidiary, and Jinah Lee, PharmD, ?Senior Medical Science Liaison at GlaxoSmithKline; both of whom have extensive experience in managing mentor programs.

"This is unique and there is no other program in the world like this available for MSLs or MSL management," stated Dr. Samuel Dyer, CEO of the MSL Society. "We are proud to offer this very valuable and unique resource for our members."
