Associate Medical Strategist

Medical Strategy

Conshohocken, Pennsylvania

Do you have a passion for storytelling steeped in science and data? Do you want to help lead an integrated team that combines medical, digital, and brand strategy to develop award-winning physician and patient education? At Fingerpaint, we focus on infusing science into all aspects of a unified brand-building process to drive commercial and medical communication strategies.


The associate medical strategist will utilize their full scientific skill set—tapping into deep scientific knowledge, critical thinking, data analysis, and creativity—to build a comprehensive understanding of relevant pharmaceuticals, devices, and disease states. As the scientific expert, your primary responsibility will be to address the daily medical needs of the brand. This includes evaluating the current competitive landscape to help develop new road maps to shape brands, including new messaging and explorations of the unmet needs. This role requires extreme attention to detail, strong organizational skills, and the ability to retrieve, comprehend, and interpret scientific literature. Our ideal partner is a deep and dynamic thinker who can read beyond the data to create focused scientific concepts, push past observations to insights, and help guide our teams forward in strategic development.
