“I work in HEOR/market access as I am continuously able to build my skills and challenge myself to combine science, creativity and commercial experience to provide strategic guidance and support clients’ needs, which is very rewarding.”

“I work in HEOR/market access as I enjoy the exposure to a diverse range of projects. From costed-pathway tools to launch programmes to pricing research, I have an opportunity to help patients gain access to medications whilst continually learning in my role.”

Sonika Awasthy, Market Access Consultant at OPEN VIE (part of the OPEN Health Group)

“I work in HEOR/market access because it constantly allows creative thinking and requires close working across all key functions of pharma – HEOR, medical, strategic marketing, PR and communications. The marriage of access and commercial
– getting other teams to understand the importance of, and align their activities with, the access strategy – is a constant challenge and requires people skills, patience and collaboration!”

Obaro Evuarherhe, Principal Consultant, Value Demonstration Practice at Oxford PharmaGenesis

“I work in HEOR/market access, which allows me to look at both the clinical and socioeconomic benefits of a wide variety of new medical products. I find this broad and holistic approach to value demonstration, and opportunities to deliver
evidence to different audiences in ways that are meaningful to them, to be immensely interesting and satisfying. A career in HEOR/market access allows you to build on a range of skills, from robust scientific understanding to the creativity required to deliver highly visual materials.”

Colin Glen, Principal Consultant, Value Demonstration Practice at Oxford PharmaGenesis
