Job Overview:

The Medical Director will join the company’s medical affairs team and predominantly focus on professional education, comprising education of healthcare professionals on the current clinical outcomes and best-practice endoscopic techniques related to radiofrequency ablation for the treatment of Barrett’s esophagus and other gastroenterological diseases.


Job Description:

  • Achieve expertise in the endoscopic skills and clinical decision-making necessary to provide training for physicians, nurses, and BÂRRX personnel related to the HALO Ablation System.
  • Build relationships with physician customers by acting as a peer resource by traveling to their institutions for one on one meetings and departmental presentations of the data relevant to the HALO Ablation System.
  • Provide technical support for the HALO Ablation System.
  • Represent BÂRRX at national and international meetings by participating in clinical discussions, assisting in live demonstrations and fostering education and adoption efforts in the exhibit hall.
