Meet Maher Abdel-Sattar, PharmD, MS

My journey at Xcenda has been an incredible one! It started with me completing an APPE rotation with Xcenda, which allowed me to discover the unique company culture and explore different types of projects across both commercial and scientific consulting. My rewarding rotation experience propelled me to pursue a career in consulting and complete a 2-year Health Outcomes & Market Access fellowship with Xcenda upon graduating from pharmacy school. Through the fellowship, I gained a deeper understanding of Xcenda’s many consulting services and developed essential skills to contribute to project work first as a content developer and eventually as a project lead. I also highly appreciated the mentorship opportunities with Xcenda’s leadership team, precepting experiences, independent research projects, complimentary MS degree coursework, and additional trainings offered through the fellowship. The program truly prepared me to be a successful consultant and set me up for continued growth within the company. I now serve as the team lead for Xcenda’s Market Research Strategy team and contribute to the growth of future fellows as the director of the Health Outcomes & Market Access fellowship.
