What they said

“The Physician Fellowship at BMS is a great introduction into the world of the pharmaceutical industry.. My fellowship year, split between clinical development and medical affairs, allowed me to gain an understanding of the role of a physician in both functional areas, and find my niche in the broader matrix team. I was able to gain the fundamental skills to transition into the role of Associate Clinical Trial Physician at BMS. I recommend this fellowship for physicians hoping to ease their transition into the pharmaceutical industry with a support system of passionate mentors and peers.”
