10 Best Chief Medical Officers In India


The role of a Chief Medical Officer was earlier restricted to just the medical industry, including hospitals, biotech, and pharmaceuticals. However, the pandemic made all other industries realise the importance of a CMO in their response to this crisis. Since then, companies are on a spree to get the expert from the field to ensure their employees work in a safe and secure environment.

However, to become an expert in the field, a medical officer needs years of experience, great communication and analytical skills, empathy and better understanding of the business and risk milieu. The pandemic has added an additional responsibility to a CMO’s role of providing mental-health support to their employee. They also define the guidelines to ensure that employees and customers function in a safe environment.
