"The CUSP-Amgen Oncology Medical Affairs Fellowship offers a unique combination of real-time interdisciplinary patient care, pharmaceutical industry training, and academic teaching experiences. During the initial portion of the program, the fellow participates in real-time oncology practice alongside a multidisciplinary patient care team including oncologists, pharmacists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and more. The fellow concurrently gains direct teaching, research, and precepting experiences in both academic and industry settings. These opportunities provide important clinical and professional insights that translate into the industry-focused work at Amgen, which includes training in Medical Affairs and elective functional rotations. My mentors in these various training settings integrated me as a valuable member of their teams, while ensuring the program aligned with my professional and personal career goals. The culmination of these valuable experiences poises the fellow for a successful career in the biopharmaceutical industry."

"The goal of this program is to equip the fellow with a diverse skillset to excel in the pharmaceutical industry by providing clinical exposure, teaching opportunities, and extensive experiences in Medical Affairs. By collaborating alongside healthcare providers and academic scholars, I gained a deeper understanding and kept abreast of changes in the constantly evolving fields of hematology and oncology. This allowed me to develop a strong foundation of knowledge that can be translated to the roles and responsibilities of Medical Affairs. The rotational-based training at Amgen built upon my therapeutic knowledge and core competencies by contributing to meaningful projects for a robust drug portfolio. The program emphasized instilling a strong balance of autonomy to lead high-yield projects while also receiving support from my team members. With the guidance of the program directors and preceptors, I was able to tailor my experiences and pursue opportunities to help reach my professional and personal goals. Since the beginning, my mentors and colleagues were wholly devoted to my professional growth, ensuring that I continued to develop and refine skills that will be embedded in me throughout my career."
