A Medical & Product Training program was conducted in June 2010 at Karachi & Lahore for the New Team Induction as part of the reorganization/expansion in the Field Force.

These training programs are a regular feature of Scilife Marketing team-building and updating of information- both Medical as well as individual Product Training.

These are also conducted whenever a new product is launched as we strongly believe it to part of our duty to continuously update as well as expand the knowledge base of our colleagues in the field.

The program was specifically designed for fine tuning of the Managerial Capabilities, Development of a common language and set the company culture in which meritocracy is the key word.

The LEP was conducted by lead trainers which included Mr. Shahid Ghoury –our Managing Director, Mr. Ashar Majeed - Manager Marketing & Sales and Mr. Juman Khan, the Business Unit Manager.
