Traditionally, medical affairs departments have focused most on domestic operations but more and more companies are broadening their reach to international operations, especially in the EU, Pacific Rim, and emerging markets. These new markets vary considerably from the US and from country to country, requiring new knowledge and skill development. The forum will share perspectives from medical affairs professionals across the globe who will discuss the necessary skills and best practices for working globally and cross functionally.
