Medical Information - Biohaven Pharmaceuticals

Campuses: Yardley, PA and New Haven, CT

Fellowship: remote-based; the fellow would work primarily remotely, though would need to travel to both Biohaven campuses and the university several times over the course of the fellowship year. 

Biohaven is a commercial-stage biopharmaceutical company with a portfolio of innovative therapies targeting neurological and psychiatric diseases, including rare disorders. Our progress is fueled by an entrepreneurial organizational structure and an impressive range of experience in drug development and commercialization. 

Fellows will develop skills to evaluate complex scientific information, develop strategic plans, and operationalize plans as part of the Biohaven Medical Affairs team. Work will involve internal stakeholders within Biohaven as well as external audiences, including healthcare professionals and consumers.

The one-year fellowship at Biohaven Pharmaceuticals provides experiences in medical information and cross-functional medical partners.
