Our Business

Over the past 15 years, SciMed has built an extensive record of success, developing elegant learning solutions to complex subjects for a variety of products across different disease areas.

We build solutions that give people the knowledge and expertise they need to succeed.

Our products are bespoke because we know that one size definitely does not fit all and, as our speciality is designing products that inspire as well as educate, we help clients to change conversations and influence behaviour.

We work across job functions and at every level of the pharmaceutical industry – from national to global. We also have extensive translation experience, helping to build knowledge and awareness across the globe.

Our specialist experience covers a number of therapeutic areas including oncology, haematology, nephrology and infectious diseases, but our real expertise lies in translating difficult science into compelling learning experiences that engage your medical, marketing and sales teams, giving them the skills to support your products more effectively.

We can help you educate your team and grow your brands through:

  • Bespoke e-Learning platforms
  • Curriculum design
  • Salesforce effectiveness
  • Leadership empowerment
  • Fluency programmes
  • Strategic consulting

This unique ability to transform the complex to the comprehensible makes him a rare and valued commodity in this industry.
