  • A relevant postgraduate qualification (e.g., MD, PharmD, PhD/MSc in a Life sciences discipline, or other post-graduate health professional qualifications).

  • Proven success in creating and sustaining strong relationships with internal and external business partners across an organization to create positive partnerships.
