About Six Degrees Medical Consulting

At Six Degrees, our job is to tell our client’s story – about data, brand, disease or company. We do so by harnessing the impressive skills of our staff to find the right vehicle for communicating the story, and the right messages that objectively and convincingly define our client’s position.

The vehicle is often a meeting: advisory board, CME event, clinical trial results meeting, etc. Every great meeting needs an innovative and interactive strategy and we are known as highly creative meeting designers. A Six Degrees event is fast-paced, dynamic and designed to engage healthcare professionals throughout.

A great program also needs vivid content: our team of highly experienced medical strategists produces slide decks that are compelling, targeted and scientifically accurate. Whether the assignment is a new slide set or a large medical event, we enthusiastically respond to the client brief with ideas for bringing cost-effective success to every project.
