Those who are hoping to enter the medical sales field should consider jobs that involve promoting over the counter (OTC) products. In many cases, these medical sales positions are easier to get than those involving prescription drugs and therefore represent excellent entry level jobs into the industry.
Some medical fields such as pediatrics and dermatology as well as family medicine, involve a great deal of over the counter products that do not require prescriptions.
Those who work in medical sales positions with primarily OTC products will have excellent experience to move over to prescription drug representative positions if they wish. See more details in Medical Sales Positions With OTCs.
