Arlington, VA, United States, 2014/09/10 - Probably the best medical sales training book written in the last 20 years! I highly recommend it. Many companies are using it to qualify candidates or train their own reps - MedicalSalesCareer.com.
A registered certificate program (RMSR) offered through an educational alliance between the NAMSR (National Association of Medical Sales Representatives), a nonprofit organization that generates workforce and economic development, and many medical sales industry executives as well as medical companies will allow entry level applicants to obtain skills in the medical device and equipment industry and improve their employment opportunities.
“We found strong evidence that medical sales vocational education plays a large role in the selection process when companies look to hire medical sales reps,” said Melvin Simmons, a Director at the NAMSR and also oversee the RMSR Program. “The findings are clear that providing entry level education programs and vocational training helps thousands of new applicants qualify for the fast growing industry of medical device and equipment sales and also improves their future sales projections prospects.”
Researchers conducted a comprehensive review of the medical sales training with its industry specific scientific medical industry product knowledge and performed a meta-analysis to synthesize the findings from multiple studies about the effectiveness of medical sales vocational education programs. A meta-analysis is a comprehensive way of synthesizing findings from multiple studies to develop scientific consensus about the efficacy of a program or an intervention.
