A New Addition to the Pharma Marketing News Archives!

PhysEd Supplement Cover OVERVIEW

It’s a new era for pharmaceutical company support of physician education.

The second event defining this new era was the withdrawal of Vioxx from the market in 2004 and the subsequent re-emergence of the importance of physicians as “learned intermediaries.”

This Special Supplement to Pharma Markeing News is critical reading for pharmaceutical companies and physician education service providers wishing to understand the new roles of key opinion leader physicians (KOLs) and medical science liaisons (MSLs) in the physician education process.
