I run into many physicians who are not familiar with the acronym VPMA (vice president of medical affairs). Most people know things like CMO (chief medical officer) and now the CMIO (chief medical information officer) is becoming a highly visible and important role.
You'll find VPMA jobs in hospitals, in pharmaceutical companies, managed care organizations, and various other industry settings. Take a look at all the VPMA jobs that show up here. Most of these are related to hospitals and medical management, but did you see the others? (you'll also see some jobs listed as Vice President, Medical Director)
