Why Become Board Certified in Medical Affairs?

Certification is becoming an important factor in the healthcare industry in general. A survey of over 1000 key opinion leaders (KOLs) found that over 90% preferred medical affairs professionals who had a Board Certified Medical Affairs Specialist (BCMAS) designation.

Several pharmaceutical companies also look at certification as a way to assess whether an individual possesses the skills and knowledge required for successful performance in a medical affairs role. Why are companies looking for this assurance? They want to hire the best of the best. By becoming board certified in your field of expertise, and by maintaining BCMAS, you are saying that you:

  • Have met standards that have been established and verified by a credible, accrediting body.
  • Are dedicated to maintaining quality of excellence in your profession.

These are powerful statements that speak volumes about you as a professional and the company or organization you represent. Board certification demonstrates that you are committed to your profession and that you want to continue to learn and grow.

Studies have shown that individuals who are certified in their field have higher salaries and better promotion opportunities.
