The pharmaceutical industry provides challenging and rewarding career opportunities for physicians. Given that clinical drug development for cardio-metabolic and oncological indications are the focus for many pharmaceutical companies, physicians and scientists with specialist training in endocrinology, diabetes and metabolism are in demand. In addition to responsibilities in clinical trial design, drug safety and regulatory affairs, physician scientists with an intimate knowledge of human disease processes are increasingly sought after to support human drug target validation efforts. In this seminar, the scope of career opportunities and responsibilities for physicians in the pharmaceutical industry will be discussed.
