Have you ever thought of becoming a medical assessor?
We offer a range of specialist scientific roles in the Agency, amongst which are medical assessors who are involved in all stages of regulation of clinical development and marketing of medicines. As key members of multi-disciplinary assessment teams, they are responsible for deciding on whether a medicine is safe enough to progress into clinical trials, whether there is a positive balance of benefits over risks prior to marketing a medicine and whether additional safety measures need to be taken after marketing.
Medical assessors are also involved in giving scientific advice to drug developers on their clinical development programmes, including how a clinical trial should be designed and the regulatory routes to market. They also participate as speakers in conferences on aspects of medicines regulation and clinical development.
Career options the medical assessor role provides
After joining MHRA medical assessors are mentored in their role and are able to progress though our competency framework handling more complex and varied workload and taking on representational roles within the Agency, within the UK and globally.
There is also the opportunity to continue your medical training whilst at the MHRA and enroll with the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Medicine, working towards CCT in Pharmaceutical Medicine.
