Graduation day is celebrated by Lucid’s third Futures Academy cohort
Mar 12, 2019
Lucid’s Futures Academy is proud to release its most recent cohort of graduates into the business for the first of their two rotations.
The Futures Academy begins with an eight-week intensive course, aimed at equipping graduates with the skills needed for their careers in either account management or medical writing. The course, which began in January, covered a wide variety of topics, from general education about the pharmaceutical industry and its regulatory environment, to more specific tools for account management, medical writing and brand planning.
Elizabeth Hunt, one of this year’s cohort commented, “I think one great, and quite unique, aspect of the programme is the opportunity to see what is involved in both writing and accounts. A lot of people’s preferences change during their placements, so to have the chance to try both is really special and reflects Lucid’s willingness to make your job fit with you and your passions.”
Charlotte Monnickendam, another of this year’s graduates also said, “The programme gave us exposure to some of the industry’s finest people. From hiring external pharmaceutical marketing experts to spending valuable time with some of Lucid’s leaders. We are now in a good position to hone our skills to pursue our desired careers.”
The Futures Academy illustrates Lucid’s continual investment in bringing new talent to the industry. The programme reflects the human-centric spirit of the Lucid Group – individuals and teams working together to help nurture and build talent.
