Global pharmaceutical company Merz Aesthetics has introduced three new Merz Innovation Partners (MIP) as part of its educational team.

The new partners include aesthetic practitioners Dr Dev Patel and Dr Chris Hutton, as well as dermatologist and hair restoration surgeon Dr Max Malik.

The Merz Innovation Board (MIB) and MIP team are a group of clinical educators and ambassadors that deliver a wide variety of medical education across the Merz portfolio and other specialist subjects, explains Merz.

Lucy Dowling, professional relations manager, said, “I am really proud to see the addition of Chris, Max and Dev to our well-established KOL and trainer network. The MIB and MIPs are integral to the success of the Merz training and education programme, providing robust clinical support to our UK and Irish supporters.”

Merz is due to launch Merz Associates in the coming months, which will be a community of healthcare professionals who Merz support and develop through relationships. The Merz Associates will enable Merz to provide increased peer-to-peer support to customers and enhance the overall medical programme, explains Merz.
