The company, part of a select group of global leaders in drug development for products aimed at improving the health of women, approached Thought Leader Select for support in a variety of collaborative efforts with leading physicians and other health care professionals at leading universities, medical schools, teaching hospitals, and specialty clinics.

Known for the versatility of applications for its in-house research and analysis, Thought Leader Select’s research group will analyze the skills and experience of specialists in multiple areas where they collaborate with leading physicians and other health care professionals, including registered nurses, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, clinical pharmacists, and medical researchers, to advance the science of medicine and patient care in women’s health, including basic and clinical research, scientific journal publishing, treatment guidelines, and more.
Throughout the remainder of the engagement, Thought Leader Select’s consulting team will provide strategic guidance, tactical recommendations for strengthening collaborative relationships with centers-based program leaders in the area of obstetrics and gynecology, and a suite of tools to promote the advancement of medical science in the treatment of uterine tumors with selected centers across the country.
“We are pleased to initiate another new client relationship for 2012, and in an area where we have proven our abilities, time and again, to match companies with the right key opinion leaders and centers of excellence in women’s health,” stated Kristen Smithwick, Vice President of Business Development, Marketing, and Strategic Planning at Thought Leader Select. “We are honored that this innovative company has chosen Thought Leader Select for this engagement, as a partner that will ensure their collaborations with leading OB-GYNs and centers in women’s health will be ethical, transparent, and effective in pushing medical science and treatment options for women forward.”
