The Medical Plan is a crucial strategic roadmap that guides Medical Affairs’ activities during the year and ensures that the Medical Affairs team optimally contributes to the success of a company’s brands. A strategically and well-crafted medical plan will not only enhance the impact of the Medical Affairs team in engaging with key stakeholders, it will also facilitate proactive decision-making and position the department as a vital contributor to the overall success of the company. 

This course equips you with the tools and skills to build a medical plan in a logical way.

But for a plan to be impactful, decisions during tactical implementation are equally critical. You will get many tips and tricks on how to choose the most effective tactics to reach the goals set in the Medical Plan, and on how to optimally plan and execute them in the year.

Join a group of your international cross-industry peers, mostly medical advisors and medical science liaisons, to learn from their experiences, discuss common issues and gain new ideas. 

  1. The strategic importance of a Medical Plan and its critical building blocks.

  2. Various easy-to-use but impactful tools for strategic decision making.

  3. How a well-crafted Medical Plan lays the foundation for successful external and internal stakeholder engagement.

VAT Information

The prices on our website are excluding VAT. Depending on the format of the course (face-to-face in Brussels or live online or self-study programme) and your location, we are obliged by Belgian law to apply VAT.

We are obliged by Belgian law to apply VAT in the following cases:

Face-to-Face public course organised in Belgium


Article 53 of the European Union VAT Directive 2006/112 states that : “The place of supply of services in respect of admission to cultural, artistic, sporting, scientific, educational, entertainment or similar events, such as fairs and exhibitions, and of ancillary services related to the admission, supplied to a taxable person, shall be the place where those events actually take place.” 
If the course that you register for takes place in Belgium, we are obliged to charge 21% Belgian VAT. 
However, you can recover this Belgian VAT through the refund procedure. Note that this procedure differs depending on the country where you are located. It is best to contact your local VAT administration for this.
 

Online Public courses -  live webinar


Webinars where the participants can communicate among themselves or ask questions to the speaker(s) (be it verbally, via a chat function or similar), are considered as ‘online interactive webinars’ by the Belgian VAT administration. 
According to Article 53 of the European Union VAT Directive 2006/112, these online interactive webinars take place where the organisation of the seminar takes place, which in this case is Belgium.

This way, by participating in our courses, you do not only learn from our expert faculty but also from your international peers in the room.

No, we don't sell the course materials as a stand-alone. 
Without the expert's explanation, the exercises and the discussions with other course participants, there is very little value in the slides.

Email Inge Cornelis, partner with CELforPharma, to help you choose the course that is best suited. 

Yes! 

We have helped many managers with setting up an in-house training programme for their team.
