Medical Rep Jobs Plus Drug Rep Jobs
It’s interesting in some areas like Ontario here in Canada, where the population is always growing, the government has promised to add many more doctors in order to try and meet the demand. There are still many people who cannot get a primary care physician for themselves and as as result, they have to visit either a walk in clinic or even the emergency room at their local hospital.
Obviously, it is to everyone’s interest to limit the emergency room to real emergencies rather than coughs and colds. Now one question is if these doctor increases to happen, will this affect medical rep jobs or drug rep jobs out there?
We would think that an increase in the number of doctors would also require an increase of medical rep jobs and drug rep jobs available since each drug representative can handle only a certain number of doctors in a sales territory. But all of these changes do not happen overnight.
Just from eyeballing the greater Toronto area for example, the population increases are quite high in the downtown area as well as the suburbs with less in the more remote smaller towns. Therefore, I would think that the doctor increases would be for the areas of the GTA where the population increases are as well as where the emergency departments are already stretched to their limits.
This would put more medical rep jobs and drug rep jobs within the urban areas rather than rural but we’ll just have to wait and see. In the meantime, if you were aiming for a new career in these fields, I would not wait for the announcements of new jobs to be made before connecting with the industry. Building the initial relationships through networking now would pay off in the future.
