Do you need help with your PV department but can’t get the headcount approved?

Over the past year and a half, Klein Hersh has seen a significant uptick in the use of contractors/consultants. Following that trend, we have a “stable” of high-level consultants who are ready to tackle any challenge dealing with Pharmacovigilance/Risk Management. These consultants are generally MDs, but we also can supply your team with non-MD consultants (PharmD, RPh, RN, etc.). Don’t be afraid to inquire about pricing; we can often come up with creative ways to keep you within budget.

On average Dan Strauss and his team place more than 40 professionals into the Epidemiology and Drug Safety marketplace (including 20 MDs in 2011 and 26 MDs through November 2012). These placements range from the VP-level in Drug Safety through Manager-level Pharmacoepidemiologists.
