CMO School: How to Become a Medical Advisor

- August 9, 2017

MedTech Impact is excited to announce a new workshop: “CMO School: How to Become a Medical Advisor,” developed, designed, and presented by Arlen Meyers, MD, MBA. As President and CEO of the Society of Physician Entrepreneurs, in addition to professor emeritus at the University of Colorado School of Medicine and the Colorado School of Public Health, Modern Healthcare named Dr. Meyers one of the ‘50 Most Influential Physician Executives’ of 2011, with subsequent nominations in both 2012 and 2013.

Dr. Meyers will host the session at 7:00am on December 14, 2017, the first day of the conference. During the interactive Q&A session, attendees will learn the various aspects of how to become an operative and successful medical advisor to companies at all levels of product development. With extensive experience in consultations for companies, governments, and universities around the globe, Dr. Meyers brings valued perspective and insight surrounding entrepreneurship and commercialization.

The mission of this session is to deliver information regarding the ways in which healthcare practitioners and professionals can effectively collaborate with industries. In the sphere of healthcare, there is a necessity for companies to understand what physicians require in terms of new products and/or services: more importantly, how a physician will integrate tools into practice. Yet there is no formal continuing education focused on ways to become a Chief Medical Officer, or a physician adviser.

Dr. Meyers will discuss where to find opportunities, in addition to what resources and networking opportunities are currently available. He will further delve into strategic ways to outline expectations concerning time, resources, and compensation. Dr. Meyers will also emphasize potential pitfalls and drawbacks, coupled with ways to avoid problematic obstacles.
