Gender Pay Gaps Among Medical Science Liaisons and MSL Management

Gender Pay Gaps Among Medical Science Liaisons and MSL Management

For the first time, gender pay gaps have been studied among Medical Science Liaisons (MSL) and MSL Management. Although gender pay gaps have not been studied within the Medical Science Liaison profession specifically, they have been investigated in numerous professions within healthcare and the pharmaceutical industry, including pharmaceutical and biotech sales representatives, healthcare sales, and medicine. 

The Medical Science Liaison Society recently conducted the 2nd annual global survey on Salary and Compensation levels for both Medical Science Liaisons (MSLs) and MSL Management, which included salaries for both groups based on gender. While the primary purpose of this survey was to gain a better insight into the present level of MSL and MSL Management salary and compensation levels across biotechnology, pharmaceutical, medical devices, and other healthcare companies, gender pay gap differences were revealed for the first time. Several groups were evaluated in the study including MSLs in the U.S. and globally, new MSLs in the U.S. and globally, and MSL managers in the U.S. and globally.
