If you always wanted a career in medicine but couldn’t stand dealing with the blood and guts or didn’t quite have the grades to get into medical school, there’s another way you can still work in the healthcare field. Medical sales representatives from drug companies play prominent roles in the world of medicine. These are highly trained individuals who educate medical professionals such as physicians, nurses and pharmacists on the use of the drug products they represent.
At hospitals and medical clinics, you will see well dressed individuals carrying brief cases filled with literature and drug samples. These are the medical sales representatives. They help keep medical professionals up to date since there are always changes occurring such as new drug treatments, new clinical studies and even new information on older or existing drugs. Medical professionals, especially doctors and pharmacists, must keep up to date on these changes in order to keep providing optimal care for patients.
Medical sales reps can have very lucrative careers as overall income levels can be in the six figure range for top professionals. This is proof that one doesn't need medical school to earn top money. There are many other nice benefits including company car as well as a working environment with lots of freedom and independence. There are good opportunities for travel too since attending sales and medical meetings are all part of the medical sales job.
In addition to drug products, there are also medical sales representatives who deal with medical devices such as diagnostic tests and medical equipment. But the reps dealing with prescription drugs are the biggest and most visible group in medical sales. Most large multinational drug firms have medical sales forces worldwide.
Therefore, a career as a medical sales representative is a viable option to work in the field of medicine without having to wear a lab coat or have patients cough all over you.
