The Medical Science Liaison Society is excited to announce the launch of a new Internship Program in conjunction with the University of North Carolina (UNC) at Chapel Hill.

Interns will be paid by the university, and gain invaluable exposure and knowledge about the MSL role by engaging with MSL leaders, assisting in original research projects, and participating in a variety of training events that prepare them for MSL careers. We are excited to also announce after a lengthy application process that Kara Jensen has been selected as the first intern and began her internship this month.

“We are very excited about the new Internship Program between UNC and the MSL Society,” commented Patrick Brandt, PhD, Director of Career Development and Training at the UNC-Chapel Hill Office of Graduate Education. “The MSL Society is the credible source of information for aspiring MSLs. Many of our trainees at UNC are interested in the career path but lack a deep understanding of the MSL role. The MSL Society’s Internship Program will give interns unique experiences and the necessary knowledge, experience, and confidence to be successful MSLs.”

The MSL role is dynamic and rapidly-growing. The new Internship Program is a unique opportunity for UNC students who wish to pursue an MSL career. Interns will develop a level of knowledge and perspective that cannot be gained elsewhere. We are excited to be working with UNC on this unique Internship Program.
