Sales Specialist - Dermatology - Omaha NE - Remote

Job Description

Almost 2,000,000 patients suffer from plaque psoriasis in the US, and while 90% of them have received a diagnosis, only ~150k of them are treated with biologic therapies. The past 5 years have registered many new biologic therapies entering the moderate-to-severe PsO landscape, bringing HCPs and patients expectations for the efficacy-safety trade off to new levels, and still highlighting unmet need for the patients suffering from this chronic, many times debilitating condition.

As a global healthcare leader, Novartis has one of the most exciting product pipelines in the industry today. A pipeline of innovative medicines brought to life by diverse, hardworking, performance driven people. All of which makes us one of the most rewarding employers in our field.
