Pharmaceutical Medical Director Salaries

What happens if you search Google for Pharmaceutical Medical Director Salaries? One of the first websites you'll find is Glassdoor:

Here are some numbers from Glassdoor:

  • Novartis Pharmaceuticals Senior Medical Director $223,317
  • Novartis Senior Medical Director $275,530
  • Merrimack Pharmaceuticals Senior Medical Director $272,324

However, take these numbers with a grain of salt because on average, only two (2) people at each company reported a salary figure. Two. That doesn't seem like enough to generate a meaningful average.

At Amgen, there were 6 reported salaries: Medical Director Amgen $222,661

That figure is similar to the average Medical Director salaries reported by UnitedHealth Group (7 reported salaries from UnitedHealth Group employees): $229,086

What about a different source such as Let's look at their "Medical Director Salaries" page (which appears to include data from the Aerospace & Defense, Biotechnology, Business Services, Edu., Gov't. & Nonprofit, Energy & Utilities, Financial Services, Healthcare, Hospitality & Leisure, Insurance, Media, MFG Durable, MFG Nondurable, Pharmaceuticals, Retail & Wholesale industries):
The median annual Medical Director salary is $252,773 with a range usually between $230,915-$277,006. However, the salary for someone with the title Medical Director may vary depending on a number of factors including industry, company size, location, years of experience and level of education.
That range of $230k to $277k is reflective of 25-75% of Medical Director salaries. If you broaden the range to include 10-90% of Medical Director salaries, then you're looking at a range between $211k to $299k. 

There's one final and interesting factor to consider: in the clinical world, most medical directors are either MDs or DOs. They are physicians. But, in the business world, a "Medical Director" may be a PhD, a PharmD, an NP, someone with a master's degree, etc. You don't have to be a physician to hold the "Medical Director" title in the corporate world (of course, this also depends on the industry).

Obesity and Knee Pain


Carrying too much body weight can do real damage to your knees — and set you up for a world of pain. Here's why.

If you've ever loaded your car's trunk with heavy objects or driven with four adult passengers, you may have noticed that the ride wasn't as smooth. Your car's shock absorbers probably didn't soak up the jolts from the bumps and the potholes as well as they would have with a lighter load. Similarly, if you're carrying too much…

Treat Your Feet Better

Thursday, January 17th, 2013

The average person walks the equivalent of three times around the Earth in a

lifetime. That is enormous wear and tear on the 26 bones, 33 joints and more

than 100 tendons.

In a recent survey for the American Podiatric Medical Association, 53 percent

of respondents reported foot pain…
