What type of salary can you expect as an MSL? (Medical Science Liaison)
Like many positions, salary may depend on your geographic region, cost of housing/living, etc. According to Indeed.com (a search engine for jobs, allowing job seekers to find jobs posted on thousands of company career sites and job boards), the average salary for an MSL is $76,000. Does that seem right?
Let's check PayScale.com and see what they have to say:
These types of salary scales and salary calculators are not always accurate because so many different factors impact salary. They don't factor things like a signing bonus, stock options, a performance bonus, etc. If you're working as an MSL, you won't be "selling" anything, so don't expect any sales commissions. The life of an MSL isn't an easy one if you don't enjoy traveling.
