For example, a Clinician would use the Clinician gateway, a Researcher would use the Researcher gateway at the top of the Corporate homepage ( Roll your mouse over the gateway or click on it directly. Careers, Investors and other general interest links are found at the bottom. Select the gateway that most closely represents your area of interest to get to the most relevant information.
