We then provide interviewers with the questions and our standard Innovara Interview Rating System™. After the interview, all materials are passed to HR for candidate selection.

- Present the final applications to the company for funding (subject to availability)

Learn how you stack up against your competitors. We compare the best practices of the industry to your company’s performance and propensity, uncovering specific areas where your company are leading or lagging behind the competition.

How well do you believe you understand each MTL with whom you work? Using our Innovara Medical Thought Leader Evaluation System™, we take the guesswork out of choosing a speaker, recommending someone to do clinical research, or forming an advisory board. We organize your MTLs in the way that will best serve your organization’s needs.
