PharmAffinity Forum: Qualifications required for medical affairs

For medical affairs, the key thing is  a scientific background 

For medical advisor (and more senior)  roles you need to be a registered pharmacist or a registered physician, these are necessary to become an ABPI signatory

There are Scientific Advisor or  medical scientific liaison  (MSL) roles where a life sciences degree or PhD is needed.

Can you be a medical advisor without becoming a signatory?

Yes it is possible to be a medical advisor and not be a final signatory. Some companies prefer their medical advisors to be signatories and others prefer them not be!
