We help manufacturers successfully commercialize innovative medical treatments and technologies in complex and cost-constrained global markets. Our broad, yet strategically connected, array of consulting services supports all phases of the product life cycle.

This position is responsible for providing support to Xcenda’s clients specific to their staffing needs (eg. addressing client capability or capacity related gaps by attending client meetings, developing strategic plans and implementing research engagements as an onsite or remote associate) in the health economics and outcomes research and/or market access space.
