Entrepreneurial Spirit, Rooted in Tradition. At Mitsubishi Tanabe Pharma America, Inc. (MTPA), we can tout a storied reputation more than 300 years in the making. Our parent company, Mitsubishi Tanabe Pharma Corporation, is a research-driven pharmaceutical company with global reach – and one of Japan’s oldest and most respected companies.
With the recent FDA approval and availability in the U.S. of RADICAVA® (edaravone), a treatment option for people diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), MTPA is rapidly expanding our operation across all functional areas to launch this new product in the U.S. market. Concurrently, the company is expanding its research efforts and exploring collaborations with partners to discover and bring treatments to market for unmet medical needs including orphan diseases. We currently seek motivated professionals who share our vision of scientific excellence, innovation, and unwavering dedication to improving the lives of patients.
The Clinical Education Director is responsible for ensuring superior field-based execution by a team of contracted Clinical Educators (typically nurses) whose primary mission will be to educate patients and their caregivers about ALS, RADICAVA® (edaravone), and Mitsubishi Tanabe Pharma America’s patient access programs. Additionally, the team will proactively engage with clinics treating patients with ALS, as well as patient advocacy organizations to build ongoing relationships with staff and provide product education and disease state information to the patient and HCP in their ALS journey. The Clinical Educators will work from patient referrals generated by other ALS patients, patient HUBS, advocacy groups, and other sources; it is an education-focused role with no sales duties.
The Clinical Education Director is a field-based role that will be responsible for setting overall program strategy, goals and milestones, working with external agencies to create training, and then providing oversight, leadership, coaching, and development to the contracted Clinical Educators to help them create and execute successful business plans and achieve the goals. This incumbent will work cross-functionally with internal team members and 3rd party vendors to ensure all appropriate training, compliance, and developmental objectives are achieved.
