Testimonials

“The thing that really drove me to pursue the ECIR fellowship was the chance to work with a multitude of different pharmaceutical companies and work in a variety of different therapeutic areas. This truly allowed me to build an unparalleled CV and made me an extremely compelling candidate following the completion of my fellowship. I was able to parlay my expansive experiences into my dream job and honestly do not think I could've felt more prepared going into the job application process. I also couldn't have asked for a more supportive leadership team. The relationships built during my fellowship were invaluable and ones that I intend to carry forward for a lifetime. All in all, if I could go back, I wouldn't change a thing and I know ECIR was the right choice for me!”

PharmD, AbbVie

“Completing a fellowship at ECIR was the best decision I have ever made. It equipped me with the knowledge to run clinical trials, become a sound educator, and obtain a highly coveted position within the pharmaceutical industry. The skills that I gained continue to support each decision that I make today. This fellowship is among the top 2 programs in the world for candidates pursuing academia or the pharmaceutical industry.”

Niren Shah,
PharmD, MBA, VP, Program & Alliance Management, Taysha Gene Therapies

“I loved being a fellow at ECIR for a number of reasons, most notably because I truly felt like I was part of a collaborative team from day 1. My contributions were valued, and I was given autonomy, yet my fellowship directors were always available to support and guide me. This built in me the confidence to take ownership of meaningful projects, verbalize new solutions or ideas, and interface directly with clients on a daily basis. The fellowship afforded me the opportunity to work with different pharmaceutical companies, across multiple disease states, and in various sectors of pharma. This “trifecta” of experience made me an extremely marketable candidate for my dream job as an MSL. However, as the end of my fellowship neared, I realized my dream job was at ECIR, and I couldn’t be happier to work as a scientific strategist alongside a team I love!”
