MAPS Focus Area Working Groups

As part of MAPS’ mission to elevate excellence in Medical Affairs, our leadership has devised strategic Focus Areas around which we are developing our global strategic plan for ongoing and new MAPS initiatives.

We are currently looking to form Expert Working Groups for each of these Focus Areas,  which will inform and support our ELC Focus Area leads on the further development and implementation of our strategic plan.

Currently, we have 10 Focus Areas (outlined in the table below). If you are a subject matter expert with a minimum of 15 years’ experience in any of these focus areas, we invite you to apply for a Working Group.

  • Give back to your industry: Be instrumental in developing excellence within Medical Affairs
  • Cultivate valuable partnerships: Broaden your peer network and enhance your own learnings while helping others

Priority application deadline is Friday, June 8, 2018
