The Medical Science Liaison Society recently conducted a global survey in 2015 to gain insights into what KPI’s and metrics are used to measure Medical Science Liaisons across pharmaceutical, biotechnology, medical devices, and other healthcare companies.

What made this survey unique was that in addition to discovering what KPI’s are being used, we also identified how MSLs want to be measured and the challenges of measuring the value of the MSL role. 

We had an awesome response!

The results represent 781 Medical Science Liaisons (MSLs) and MSL management from 46 countries.

This is the largest MSL KPI database of any kind and as a result, it is the most comprehensive and authoritative resource on current global MSL KPI’s and metrics being used. The data is being made available in multiple formats including a full 74 page written report, covering the entire global results and individual slide sets covering 4 regions: Global, USA, Europe, and Asia-Pacific.

As with all original MSL research conducted by the MSL Society, we are sharing a copy of the full written report and all slides sets for regional data with members of the MSL Society and those that participated. All five reports are available for immediate download on the MSL Society website for all members here

Our goal is to create and provide valuable resources to the global MSL community.

Like all our research, all the slides are available Free for all members of the MSL Society as well as to those who participated. We hope the MSL community will continue to participate in all future MSL Society research. 

We strongly believe this type of information should be readily available and free! We will NEVER sell the data to anyone!

We hope that you find the information useful! 

More insights and reports coming soon.

Thanks for participating!
