Attendees will have the opportunity to either dine on their own or grab their buffet lunch and participate in networking roundtable discussions. These networking sessions will each be led by a facilitator having experience within a core Medical Affairs functional area that is specific to that table topic discussion (see topics below).
These informal networking sessions are designed to enable all roundtable participants to discuss topics of relevance to them, specific to their job functions and activities, and encourage information sharing from the perspectives of large, midsize, small, and specialty companies including the device and diagnostics industries. Facilitators will help to guide discussions, but the true catalysts of conversation will be the participants! Please join your colleagues and engage in what will sure to be a variety of insightful networking sessions.

2. Personal skills development for career growth – What technical and soft skills are valued most in your field or organization? What resources are available?
