Clinical & Medical

Functional Expertise

Our Clinical & Medical team is led by our SVP, Ray Rodriguez, one of our two Senior Vice Presidents here at Marcus & Associates. Ray leads a team of 15 consultants (three Project Directors and 12 Senior Recruiting Experts) that are constantly developing and delivering motivated, qualified Clinical & Medical candidates to our Life Science clientele. To say that we are active in this all-important space would be an understatement- the fact is, there has not been a time in the last two decades that Ray’s team has not been working on one or more Clinical & Medical searches!

At this point we have personally worked with 1000s of top Clinical leaders (either placing them or making placements for them) across all therapeutic areas in both large and small Life Science organizations. Of the 500,000 industry professionals we have in the proprietary database that we have built since 1986, 100,000 of these contacts fit squarely within the Clinical & Medical space.

This level of focus and connectivity within the Clinical & Medical functional area has tremendous benefits for both our clients and our firm. Our clients enjoy a significant competitive advantage in terms of the quality of candidates that we provide and the speed with which we provide them due to the fact that we are well-known and respected in the Clinical/Medical space.
