Medical sales representatives (widely
referred to as 'reps') are a key link
between medical and pharmaceutical
companies and healthcare professionals.
They sell their company's products, which
include medicines, prescription drugs and
medical equipment, to a variety of
customers including GPs and hospital
doctors, pharmacists and nurses.
They work strategically to increase the
awareness and use of their company's
pharmaceutical and medical products.
Medical sales reps are usually based in a specific geographical location and specialise in a particular product or medical area. They may make presentations and organise group events for healthcare professionals, as well as
working with contacts on a one-to-one basis.
In any setting, the process of selling involves contacting potential customers, identifying their needs, persuading them
that your products or services (rather than those of competitors) can best satisfy those needs; closing the sale by agreeing the terms and conditions; and
providing an after-sales service. Medical sales representatives do all of this and more.
Duties often include:
arranging appointments with doctors, pharmacists and hospital medical teams, which may include pre-arranged appointments or regular 'cold' calling; making presentations to doctors, practice staff and nurses in GP surgeries, hospital doctors and pharmacists in the retail sector. Presentations may take place in medical settings during the day, or may be conducted in the evenings at a local hotel or conference venue; organising conferences for doctors and other
medical staff; building and maintaining positive working
relationships with medical staff and supporting administrative staff; managing budgets (for catering, outside speakers,
conferences, hospitality, etc.);
keeping detailed records of all contacts; reaching (and if possible exceeding) annual sales targets; planning work schedules and weekly and monthly
timetables. This may involve working with the area sales team or discussing future targets with
the area sales manager. Generally, medical sales
executives have their own regional area of responsibility and plan how and when to target health professions; regularly attending company meetings, technical
data presentations and briefings;
keeping up to date with the latest clinical data supplied by the company, and interpreting,
presenting and discussing this data with health professionals during presentations;
monitoring competitor activity and competitors'products;
maintaining knowledge of new developments in the National Health Service (NHS), anticipating
potential negative and positive impacts on the business and adapting strategy accordingly;
developing strategies for increasing opportunities
to meet and talk to contacts in the medical and healthcare sector; staying informed about the activities of health services in a particular area.
