Pharma Industry Executive Suzanne Soliman Sets A Standard Of Excellence For Medical Science Liaisons Worldwide
Those in the pharmaceutical industry are trusted by millions worldwide for their treatment decisions. Therefore, it’s their responsibility to be able to provide accurate medical information. Graduating with a doctorate is a phenomenal start, but not consistently enough to achieve success in the profession since the industry is constantly evolving. It’s the role of Dr. Suzanne Soliman to set the standard of excellence for pharmacists in the US to ensure their credibility.
Dr. Suzanne Soliman is a pharmacist with over a decade of experience in the field. She has completed a PharmD doctorate residency in primary care and a teaching fellowship. Besides being a clinical pharmacist, she has also worked as an independent pharmacy owner, medical science liaison (MSL), national field team educator, professor, and Dean.
Currently, she’s the Chief Academic Officer (CAO) of the Accreditation Council for Medical Affairs (ACMA). This company is an accredited provider of professional development and certification for those working in the Medical Affairs and MSL professions. Its goal is to set the standards in the life sciences industry to shape a bright future for health care.
As the CAO, Suzanne’s role is to assess and oversee the development of the Board Certification Program in Medical Affairs (BCMAS) curriculum. This program’s purpose is to provide a certification acknowledging an MSL professional’s fulfillment of ACMA standards. Through BCMAS, thousands have received aid in improving their competence and performance on the job.
Her motivation for assisting female pharmacists in getting the job and rewards they deserve can be credited to the Pharmacist Moms Group (PhMG). She founded this support group to connect with people who may have the same challenges that she sometimes faces, whether in their careers or responsibilities as mothers. Through the group, she learned that the issues they face in both aspects are more similar than she thought.
With her many contributions to the pharmaceutical industry, it’s no wonder Suzanne is an inspirational figure for many people. Her influence spans numerous social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, and TikTok. She even received multiple awards and has been invited to speak at multiple events about her expertise.
For instance, the manuscript she published in the American Journal of Pharmacy Education was hailed as the best among all the papers, granting her the Rufus A. Lyman Award. In 2019, she also became the Next-Generation Pharmacist Civic Leader Award recipient, which she was very much honored to accept. In 2020, the ACMA received the International Association for Continuing Education and Training Exemplary Training Award for the BCMAS certification. Suzanne accepted this award on behalf of the ACMA.
As ACMA’s CAO, Suzanne can play a significant role in making the future of medical affairs and MSL professionals bright. After all, as people who serve health organizations for the benefit of the masses, they must reach their competence level.
