WHAT: PENN Medicine / Industry Forum:
Pharmaceutical Marketing

Changes in both the health-care and pharmaceutical industries have made the relationship between health-care professionals and the pharmaceutical industry much more complex. The PENN Medicine / Industry Forum is designed to encourage an open dialogue among representatives of PENN Medicine and other local health-care organizations, the pharmaceutical industry, the insurance industry, and regulatory agencies. Topics to be discussed will include: perspectives on the health-care / pharmaceutical industry relationship; access to hospital facilities and health-care professionals; marketing within the University of Pennsylvania Health System (UPHS) and other health systems; business implications of calling and/or not calling on health-care professionals; and perceptions of and by sales representatives and health-care professionals.
