A Day in the Life of an Account Coordinator

sultanaJamia Sultana is an Account Coordinator at Inspired Science, a medical communications agency which is part of Ketchum Health.

Up and ready (after a number of countless teas and coffees) for a busy day at the Inspired Science offices!

I start my day by drafting an agenda for a catch-up client teleconference tomorrow, then I’m off to a referencing training session held by our very own medical writers!
 
Today, I am helping to run an online meeting where a multi-disciplinary team present a case study of a hepatitis C patient; organising a toolkit to coincide with a new data release for a respiratory drug and liaising with faculty for their flight arrangements to attend a congress on macular degeneration.

Inspired Science gave me my first role in medical communications and I have been working here since 2014 as an Account Coordinator. Every day is definitely different in the world of medical communications! I have worked on all kinds of projects, from standalone meetings attended by 600 physicians, to filming one-on-one interviews with physicians about their area of expertise.

As an Account Coordinator, my role varies by the day and I have learnt many new skills in project management, working with faculty, financial management and content creation.

My afternoon consists of trying to find filming rooms in London to coincide with a congress held in September, arranging delivery of our respiratory drug toolkit to 200 addresses and producing billing instructions for our current projects.

As the day comes to an end, I prepare my to-do list for the next day and fingers crossed we get a little more sunshine in London tomorrow!
