Industry Insider helps doctors get nonclinical careers.

Make a big difference in pharmaceutical, medical device, clinical research, and biotech roles. Let me show you how.

Want to be an Industry Insider?

There are so many career options for doctors in the pharmaceutical industry!

If you've wondered what it takes to successfully land an exciting and impactful role as a physician in the world of pharma, biotech, or medical device - you're in the right place.  Industry Insider is a step-by-step program to show you exactly how to get a nonclinical industry career, even if you think you're not qualified and you have no connections!

You will learn about the core functions for physicians leaders across the industry, what skills are most needed, and how to explore career paths as a doctor in medicine development, clinical research, medical affairs, or pharmacovigilance.

Thinking about a nonclinical job in the pharma/biotech industry, but not sure where to start?

Can't find jobs for doctors in your specialty, or that don't require years of prior experience?

Tired of searching for and applying to jobs, but never hearing back? 

Already spent a lot of time and money on career coaching, but not getting results?

Worried that you'll pay a price with your current job if they find out about your career transition goals?

If you answer yes to one (or more) of these questions, you're not alone. Every one of my students has a similar story before they join this unique program. Industry Insider changes the game. 

"Thanks Marjorie! After 2 years trying, I finally made it into industry! I owe a lot to your Industry Insider series. It was sooooo helpful to understand transferable skills and the interview questions. I'd love to tell as many people as I can about this course!"

Ronnie Shalev, MD
Director of Quality, Abbott


Industry Insider will help you from beginning to end - starting with your job search through to an offer on the table.

This 8 week intensive program covers what you really need to know - and exactly how to implement it:

  1. Learn what physicians do in industry (the structure, functions, and daily activities), and understand what companies really want in a candidate 
  2. Identify and articulate transferable physician leadership skills - I promise you have more than you think!  And if it's a deal breaker, I reveal how to get the skills you need without going back for another degree.
  3. Convert your clinical CV to an industry-friendly resume - these are totally different documents in style, length, and content. Learn what belongs on your resume, and what doesn't!
  4. Learn to actually attract opportunities instead of chasing them - with these strategies, the jobs will come to you! 
  5. Learn how to work with recruiters the right way while avoiding pitfalls and newbie mistakes that can cost you time, opportunities, and money. 
  6. Grow a new professional network from scratch - so you'll have some allies on 'the inside' even if you don't have any industry connections today. (Plus - evaluate how your interests and strengths 'match' an industry career)
  7. Demystify the industry interview experience so you know what to expect and how to shine. It's intense - you don't want to wing this!
  8. Be prepared to receive and confidently negotiate offers - compensation structure is totally different in industry, and you should know what's really on the table.



"This course is so well organized. Each session is fully packed with discrete, actionable information. Transitioning careers is challenging, and Industry Insider was the key for my success!"

Rupa Danier, MD
Global Patient Safety, AstraZeneca

You may already have faced numerous rejections or worse - no replies at all. I'll help you understand why, and what to do about it. 

Trying to break into a nonclinical healthcare role is often mysterious and demoralizing, but it doesn't have to be.  You simply need a step-by-step plan to tackle the process. And you need a plan that is streamlined and strategic. (Hint: it's not about sending out tons of applications.) 

This series will show you how to create opportunities and how to be ready when your big moment comes. You can relax knowing you understand the process, can talk the talk, and have the right assets in place.

You'll have already done the important groundwork that can make or break your big moment when opportunity knocks. 


Who should take this course?

  • If you're frustrated because you don't know anyone, that's actually a pretty easy fix! 
  • If you've ever thought you weren't qualified, it's time to think again!
  • If it seems your applications have disappeared into a 'black hole' in the past, it's time to change that, and put them in front of an actual decision-maker.
  • If you've spent hours on LinkedIn, Glassdoor, or pharma company websites, and you have no idea whether the jobs posted would even be right for you, this course has answers. 
  • If you're worried about taking a pay cut, I've got straight talk about salary and compensation you need to hear.
  • Considering going back for an MBA?  WAIT - you almost certainly don't need it.


Is Industry Insider expensive? 

No. It's an investment you won't regret.

Executive coaching, professional resume services, and hiring your own headhunter can cost tens of thousands of dollars - and not get you very far.

Going it alone costs you your precious time, lots of wasted effort, and depletes your happiness

The truth is, other career transition services may cost you much more, and probably won't get you the same results. 

Start here. You'll be glad you did. 


This course is worth so much more  - it's a ridiculously good value.

This program could easily command 3x the price! But, one of my goals in making this available as an on-demand course is to make it affordable. To make it a no-brainer. To help YOU. So I've priced it with that in mind. I would never want the price to be a barrier to your success. 


On that note...

If the course fee is holding you back, you may not be right for this program. Please ask yourself if you're truly serious about making change happen in your life.

Enrolling is actually the easy part! 

This may be a major red flag that you aren't taking your goals seriously*.


There's no risk! 

If you do the work and you aren't completely delighted, I'll give you a full refund. I'm happy to say that no one has ever taken my course and asked for a refund, but my promise still stands. See details below. Please note - the 'speed binge' edition is excluded.


This is not a pep talk. 

This is different. More informative than discovery coaching, but you will learn a ton about yourself and your value along the way. You'll have breakthroughs and mindset shifts too, but let me be clear - this is not a pep talk.

This is tangible, practical, actionable, high-yield information. It's what you need to know to learn how to land a rewarding, well-compensated, fun career as a physician leader in the healthcare industry - medical roles in pharma, biotech, and medical device companies.

Industry Insider is totally unique. It's a step-wise action plan designed to accelerate your learning and focus your efforts, so you do what matters most and what really gets results.

Plus, it respects your busy physician schedule without a bunch of fluff. Learn at your own pace, when you can fit it in. You'll spend about an hour each week watching the content, and a few more implementing the lessons. But you can decide to stretch it out or accelerate it as you wish.

More FAQs

Q. I don't want anyone to know about my job search or career plans. Is my identity protected?

A. Yes, absolutely. No one will know you are taking this course. There's no social media group or other public forum. If you choose to share your career aspirations with others, that's obviously up to you!

Q. I've seen the job descriptions, and they all want a minimum of 5 years of pharma/biotech experience. I don't have any. Can this course still help me?

A. YES! I didn't have a single clinical trial or any other pharma experience when I landed my first medical director role. The same is true for many of my colleagues, and my successful students! All companies list prior experience as a requirement, but this is almost never actually required.

Q. What makes this different from a summit or conference?

A. In a word, a plan. This program gives you the right information and the right action steps in the right order to get actual results. It's not me telling my story - it's how you being to tell yours!  

To be sure, there's so much you can gain from summits, webinars, conferences, and individual coaching.  This program is different because it is sequential, action-oriented, and has tight continuity from one session to the next.

You won't have to wonder how to implement the information. I'm taking out all the guesswork. 


Q. What does 'lifetime access' mean, exactly?

A. It means for the life of this course, including future updates (not for the duration of your life or my life). If I ever retire the Industry Insider program, you'll get advance notice so you can review what you need before it is pulled down. If the course migrates to another platform, your lifetime access will move with it!


Q. How can I reach you with additional questions?

A. Easy! Just email me at [email protected] and I'll be happy to help.

*Still thinking about cost?

Too many doctors dread their work and desperately want something different. Some feel overwhelmed, disillusioned, or burned out.  Perhaps like you, they're beyond curiosity and know they are in an unsustainable situation.

And somehow, they think it "costs too much" to invest in the help they need.

But the truth is, my course reduces your costs by helping to:

  • get you results more quickly and easily
  • prevent costly and predictable mistakes
  • avoid the pain of trial and error
  • reduce the extra time and effort of trying to figure it out on your own


Is the opposite true instead? Maybe you can't afford not to take this course. 

What if you realized you can't afford to stay miserable and stuck?

What if you realized that your situation will never change unless you get serious?

And here's a secret - most physicians who have had successful career transitions have also had help!

Paying for expert guidance is easy. The real "cost" is time and effort to actually do the work. 


This course is an investment in yourself and your future. 

You likely invested a huge amount of time and money to become a physician.

You probably took prep courses and got expert help along the way.

Pharma and biotech physician roles are rare, and they're getting more and more competitive every day. 


Tough love alert - if you're not willing to truly invest in your own success, no one else can get you there.

If that's where you are right now, that's OK! No judgement.

I support you and I believe in you, but I'm not the right person to help you. 

On the other hand, if you're ready to ditch excuses and reclaim autonomy over your career and happiness, I'm ready and waiting.  See you on the inside!
