MSL Best Practices Summit

September 14-15, 2022 | Virtual Event

The “new normal” after more than two years of no face-to-face interaction is upon us. MSLs as a primary field position now are having the opportunity to go back to the field and connect with KOLs while keeping the virtual tools to engage. Entering the hybrid world to be able to successfully engage with HCPs in their preferred ways.

Therefore, the role of the MSL is evolving and MSLs are being required to wear more hats than ever before. The involvement in different aspects of the lifecycle while providing value and maintaining compliant interactions with commercial and with KOLs.

The 2nd MSL Best Practices Summit will focus on the Evolution of the role, the right use of metrics and the value they need to have when it comes to measuring the MSL function, involvement in clinical trials, KOL engagement, building the right MSL team and investing in educating and preparing your MSLs for value interactions.

Testimonials

This MSL Best Practices Summit hosted by Momentum is packed with so much valuable information. Each of the topics have built one upon another over the past two days. The presenters are extremely interactive with the virtual audience.

This is the first virtual meeting I’ve attended where I feel included and actively engaged.

All of the topics presented contain information, which is immediately applicable in an MSLs assigned region.

MSL Best Practices Summit is a great conference for new MSLs, aspiring MSLs, as well as experienced MSLs who want to refresh on everyday practice and find best ways to adjust to the new normal. The platform was seamless, and presenters provided valuable insights on new directions and best practices for KOL mapping, engagement in virtual settings, and improving soft skills to maximize MSL performance

So, to me it has been great, yesterday’s conferences were like a good introduction about the position and today it has been like “tips and pearls” which are very helpful it’s kind of hard to attend to all of them live because of the rest of our schedules but, that is why it is so helpful that we can check on them again on a “on.demand” fashion

Hi Jonathan, the sessions are generally really good and informative. I’m glad I’ve registered and have cleared my schedule to fully attend the meeting. Unfortunately my company policy won’t allow me to provide a testimonial, sorry!
