Physician NonClinical Careers with John Jurica

Jun 13, 2023

This week’s episode is a replay of the most downloaded podcast episode. It ran in early 2022. In it, John interviews Dr. Paul Hercock, the CEO of Mantra Systems. 

Paul is an expert at how to land a medical device company job, particularly in the European Union. He wrote a book about it called "Beyond The Ward: A Doctor's Guide to Careers Outside the NHS."

During his interview, Paul explains that his company is a consultancy business that provides medical and regulatory support to medical device companies. To do so, it employs physicians as medical advisors. 

And to fill the need for physicians to fill these positions, he built a training program for physicians interested in pursuing a job in the industry. It's called the Medical Affairs Associates Program. And he describes the training system and how it prepares physicians to enter this growing field.
