What spiked your interest to come back to MSD? “During my professional career, I never met a team with such a commitment to change the perspective of cancer patients. It was such an outstanding team effort that the team grew together closely. My experience in the team was so intensive, fierce, and dynamic that the ties never tore and brought me back to the team. A critical factor for my decision was that MSD now enables me to work remotely and not move to Munich. This is a great advantage and allows both to spend time for work and family.”
How do you feel now you are back, do you feel welcomed? How was the support from your family discussing your return? “Now as Medical Advisor, I am very happy to be part of this amazing team in mission of cancer treatment. I already initiated many new projects based on my learnings externally. When I returned, I received such an incredibly nice welcome and my family completely supported my return, since they knew MSD.”
Engin Gürlevik Medical Advisor, MSD Germany
What did you learn externally that you bring back to MSD? “In the years that I was away from MSD I developed my technical skills within the field of regulatory affairs. I learned to use a strategic vision and channel each of the decisions with a focus on business and patient health. During this time, I also acquired knowledge in the area of quality and processes such as obtaining permits, recognition processes for certificates of good foreign manufacturing practices, and government system management.”
What did you miss most? “What I missed the most in those years was the human warmth and teamwork that is maintained within MSD. In addition, MSD is a company that cares about the personal and professional development of each of its members.”
What spiked your interest to come back to MSD? “There are two reasons what spiked my interest to come back to MSD:
The People I find myself thinking that I must be very lucky since our amazing medical leadership team provided me with the opportunity to rejoin MSD. I am glad I am surrounded by so many people who truly care about others and performing their jobs with the highest integrity. MSD Taiwan is full of great memories, personal growth, achievements, and great lessons learned.
A New Challenge I currently oversee and support an important medicine that requires our medical team to quickly respond to the policy that may change from day to day. This quite new, quick moving and unpredictable field makes me excited and gives me the ability to learn a lot.”
Kelly Chen Medical Advisor, MSD Taiwan
