PCM Healthcare is an independent medical education and communications agency. We’re a team of passionate and talented people who develop novel approaches with outcomes in mind. We have two change-making divisions, allowing us to bring our innovative attitude to both arm’s-length educational initiatives and medical communications. Together, we make change happen:
PCM Scientific is the clinically-focused medical education and CME division of PCM Healthcare. Our creative approaches to education have been proven to improve clinical practice and we are proud that our work has a real impact on standards of patient care. No wonder we are working on some of the largest and most successful programmes in Europe! We are a founding member of the Good CME Practice Group.
Pharmacom Media is an industry-leading, full-service medical communications agency with a focus on strategic insight, scientific excellence and quality output. Our strategists, dedicated project managers and PhD-qualified writers are supported by our extraordinary, experienced, award-winning digital experts. Together, they create ingenious communication strategies and concepts specifically designed to target results.

It seems like only yesterday, yet PCM Healthcare was born in 2006 – and we have grown rapidly since then, spawning the two divisions that provide the structure for today’s company. Our growth can be attributed to our clear commitment to delivering inventive techniques and meaningful outcomes for our clients in both medical communications and CME.
What have we achieved?
PCM Scientific, our market-leading specialist CME division, has realised some of the largest and most successful practice-enhancing education programmes in Europe over the last few years. Pharmacom Media, our promotional medical communications team, has produced a raft of innovative medical communication strategies and tactical campaigns for our blue-chip pharmaceutical clients.
The company was originally founded by Alisa Pearlstone and Rob Miller. It was acquired by Cogora, a leading media and marketing services group, in October 2015. This new partnership has allowed us to dramatically extend the reach and impact of our specialist approaches – not least through Cogora’s extensive global physician network, with access to over 220,000 healthcare professionals.
We believe passionately that medical education and communications are essential components of improving standards in healthcare provision and advancing clinical practice.
What we do is not just about repackaging and transmitting information. Instead, we embark on a transformation, using the bright minds of our unrivalled team to create fresh approaches that truly meet our clients’ and audiences’ needs.
This is a company that truly lives its values. Each of our values is linked to a set of core behaviours that we expect from our team to ensure that the values remain part of the fabric of the company.
These behaviours form an integral part of PCM Healthcare’s personal development processes to ensure that the values are consistently upheld in all that we do, to make our vision and our reality one and the same.
Data from our personnel review process showed that our team feels that their personal values are aligned to the company’s values by an average of 96%.
The result? Low staff turnover, exceptional teamwork and consistent delivery to the very highest of standards.
Our foundational commitment to quality encouraged the development of the PCM Promise of Perfection, which helps to enable our success as a team at exceeding our clients’ expectations of quality and accuracy in our work. Together, this collection of resources, procedures, shared beliefs and systems forms our quality charter. This charter was designed by the PCM Healthcare Editorial Team collectively as the best possible way to safeguard the quality of all our activities. It is unusual and remarkable in both its rigour and depth.
All new staff are trained in implementing the PCM Perfect systems and are asked to sign the physical charter, proudly and prominently displayed in our premises as a permanent reminder to us all.
We are all proud of the quality of our work and are committed to delivering the very best, every day.
