Medical Sales Representative Jobs

Medical Sales Representative jobs have a key link between pharmaceutical companies and medical and healthcare professionals.  Medical Sales Representative jobs work strategically to increase the awareness and usage of a company's pharmaceutical and medical products in settings such as general practices, primary care trusts and hospitals.                      

Medical Sales Representative jobs based in a specific geographical location, and usually specialising in a particular product or medical area, they try to ensure that formularies contain their product. Medical Sales Representative jobs may also make presentations and organise group events for healthcare professionals, as well as work with contacts on a one-to-one basis.

Medical Sales Representative jobs may involve working with the area sales team or discussing future targets with the area sales manager. Generally, medical sales representaitive jobs have their own regional area of responsibility and plan how and when to target health professions in that area, regularly attending company meetings, technical data presentations and briefings, keeping up with the latest clinical data supplied by the company and interpreting, presenting and discussing this data with health professionals during presentations, staying up to date with competitors' products, developing strategies for increasing opportunities to meet and talk to contacts in the medical and healthcare industries, staying informed about the activities of health services in a particular area, working with team managers to plan how to approach contacts and creating effective business plans for making sales in a particular area.
