20/20 Money Episode #66 – Being an Optometrist and Working as a Medical Science Liaison with Nysha Blender, OD

February 10, 2020

Hello, and welcome to this episode of 20/20 Money! My guest on today’s show is Dr. Nysha Blender. Nysha joins me on the show to talk about her journey in optometry and how she ended up in a somewhat unconventional role as a medical science liaison with Ocular Therapeutix. On this show we talk briefly about her path in optometry and what caused her to go down this path of becoming an MSL and what it’s meant to her personally, professionally, and clinically. She gives us an idea of “a day in the life of” and what has surprised her most about being in this position as well as how the compensation structure and numbers compare to her traditional clinical roles as an OD. We wrap it up with her answer to my one question I ask every guest.

As a reminder, you can get all the information discussed in today’s conversation by visiting our website at integratedpwm.com and clicking on the Learning Center. While there, you can also set up a 15min pre-discovery conversation to learn a little bit more about what it means to work with our firm or check out any number of additional free resources like our eBooks and on-demand webinars.

And with that introduction, I hope you enjoy my conversation with Dr. Nysha Blender.
