Unique career path for ambitious Medical Doctors

Join Novo Nordisk’s Pharmaceutical Medicine Programme!

We are seeking five medical doctors (MDs) with a desire to explore career opportunities at Novo Nordisk.

We don’t treat one - We treat millions

Are you an MD looking for a challenging and developing career path in a pharmaceutical company? Would you like to be part of highly qualified and ambitious teams that work in a global setting? Then this is your unique opportunity to apply for a position with three job rotations where you will use your medical and scientific expertise to create better treatments and care for people living with diseases around the world.

Novo Nordisk is seeking ambitious MDs, who are interested in getting an insight into the pharmaceutical industry and who have the ambition to improve the lives of people living with serious chronic diseases around the world.

A position in the Pharmaceutical Medicine Programme offers you the opportunity to build a career in Novo Nordisk through an accelerated personal and professional learning journey. 

Take your career to a new level

The Pharmaceutical Medicine Programme is a two-year program that gives you the opportunity to experience Novo Nordisk through three eight-month rotations in key organisational areas. During each rotation, you will work as an integral team member with core elements of drug development such as clinical trials, drug safety and scientific communication. Throughout the program, you will be presented to projects requiring medical and scientific expertise. 

We offer an inspiring and ambitious working environment with a mutually rewarding commitment, alongside the flexibility to shape your own working day. The rotations are based in our corporate headquarter in Copenhagen, Denmark and some travelling is expected. Upon completion of the programme, you will be offered a position in Clinical Drug Development, Global Safety or Global Medical Affairs. 

MD with two to five years of clinical experience 

You must hold a university degree as a medical doctor to be eligible for the position. Also, you must not have previous work experience from the pharmaceutical industry. We seek candidates that have passed post-graduate internships, have between two and five years of clinical experience and documented research experience, or other qualifications of benefit and relevance to Novo Nordisk. Furthermore, you should have an analytical mindset and be capable of working in an international setting in a culture of respect, teamwork and diversity.

You should be willing to move to Denmark and work in an international arena. Novo Nordisk will support you and your family with the relocation. We expect that you are fluent in written and spoken English.
