MSL Candidate Presentation and Communication Skills Certificate Program

Learn how to effectively present and communicate like an MSL!

One of the most important skills necessary to be successful in the MSL role is the ability to effectively present scientific information to an audience. However the presentation skills needed for an effective MSL presentation is a unique combination of skills. As a result, delivering a scientific PowerPoint presentation to demonstrate this ability is commonly required during the interview process when trying to break into the MSL role.

During the presentation, those in the audience will be evaluating both your presentation skills and how you engage with the audience. Having strong communication and presentation skills is crucial to the success of candidates and experienced MSLs. However, most candidates FAIL during this stage of the interview process simply due to poor presentation skills!

The Presentation and Communications Skills Training is the only program certified by the Medical Science Liaison Society and is recognized by MSL leaders all over the world. 

The skills gained in the program will not only provide participants effective techniques to successfully present a PowerPoint presentation during the interview process but also provide a strong foundation of communications skills to be successful in your first MSL role. 

Each participant will gain:

* A clear understanding of the MSL role
* A clear understanding of KOLs
* Effective communication skills to be successful
* Personalized In-depth one-on-one MSL PowerPoint presentation skills training
* MSL Phone Interview Skills
* A Globally recognized Certificate from the MSL Society

Venue and Hotel Accommodation:

Our training will take place at the Hilton Garden Inn Durham Southpoint hotel in Durham, NC. Please visit the website for more information about the hotel, including maps, and local area. 

For those interested in staying at this hotel, accommodation is NOT covered by the program, however, we will secure a discounted rate at the same hotel.  

Upon registration, you will receive a link to make a reservation with the group discounted rates. 

Cut-Off date: TBD


The hotel is just a 15-minute taxi ride from the RDU (Raleigh/Durham) airport. We also recommend using Uber as it is very easy to get from the airport (they have a pick up spot) - is hassle free and less expensive. A great feature of North Hills, is once you’re there, you will not need a car again as there is shopping, restaurants and entertainment all within walking distance.


The itinerary and agenda includes proprietary information and will be provided to all registrants 2 weeks before the start of the program along with a “Preparation & Pre-assignment” document.

Also, there are surprise exercises and activities designed to give you the most real-life scenarios and by limiting the amount of information we give you upfront, we can get a baseline so we can then determine your progress.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to gain the skills necessary to excel during an MSL interview!

Register as soon as possible to secure your place in the program as seats are very limited due to the nature of the highly personalized training structure.

It’s going to be a great learning and networking opportunity!
