I am currently a pharmacist with 7 years pharmacy experience and would like to make a transition to life science/healthcare consulting as I would ideally like to combine my clinical background/technical background in a commercial context.I have an interest in the pharma/biotech industry and am particularly interested in R&d analysis and strategy also in product/therapy analysis. I feel i have the tranferable skills to offer and am motivated and a quick learner. I would appreciate on any advice of what channels to pursue in my transition. Is an MBA a must for someone like myself without a formal financial background? do i just cold call consulting companies witjh my CV ? and what are some life science consulting companies that would be worth looking into?
Being a neophyte, I Would very much appreciate any advice offered
