I have been in sales for sometime and want to break into the healthcare industry. My uncle works for Medtronic in their heart stint division and he recommended the RMSR Training. My question is, will the RMSR Training be also useful for pharmaceutical sales?

Many of my family members in the health care industry have suggested that I pursue a career in medical sales and as a first step complete the RMSR program. I must say to all those viewing this posting: if you are considering this designation, “just do it” and continue studying after you have gained your designation because the course material has a lot of valuable industry knowledge.

I personally have obtained my RMSR designation and have 8 successful years of Commercial B2B Sales experience. I earned my bachelor’s degree from the University of South Florida in 2003. I am also MCP certified and very quick on a computer. If anyone has any advice or knows of any positions available in the Florida market, preferably near the Tampa Bay area please e-mail me at JNovak4@tampabay.rr.com.

Hi Cynthia,

I have been in account management and outside sales for over 20 years and looking to move into the medical sales field. I am considering the RMSR training but do not have a degree. What are my chances in finding a good position in the medical industry with the RMSR training? Would I only find entry level positions? I do understand I would have to start in lower level positions but would want the opportunity to advance.

I am your same age and have 20+ yrs. experience in outside sales. I am looking to make the move into medical device sales industry but have no degree. I am looking into the RMSR training, what are your thoughts about this training?

I am sorry, but I have been a recruiter for 4 years in Medical Sales and A Divisional Manager and RVP in Medical Sales with fortune 500 companies previously. This RMSR Training...is hype...and in fact, almost a given they have a weak resume for medical sales. NO PROGRAM like that is going to make you a top candidate...have to put in the time as a copier rep., ADP, Paychex and etc. first, then Medical Disposables and then Medical Device...save your money or in this case...move to the right career pathing. I am sure someone will disagree BUT don't spend any more money on this...I and others have plenty of FREE Blog Advice from my experience that will probably serve you better. Just google and you will find it. So sorry you spent money on this, but we all learn; it's like getting a mail order degree...RMSR...do the time and earn the experience.

I am considering the RMSR training for Medical Sales, but wanted some insight first. I do have a BS degree with over 20 years of sales experience. I have been trying to break into Medical sales for over a year, and have had only one interview. I did make it down to the final two, but they went with someone with experience. Just looking for any helpful hints.

Hi Linda,

Thanks for the info, I found RMSR on the net few days ago and was thinking about ordering. After reading your posting, I am not sure now if it is the right thing to do. I have a BS degree in Nursing, 2 years experience working as a Nurse in a Hospital setting. However, I haven't practiced Nursing for the past 15 years. I spent 9 years doing marketing for silicon valley companies and have been in B2B sales for almost 2 years selling promotional merchandise to corporations. I would like to utilize my medical background to get into medical sales. What would you recommend I should do first?

I just interviewed with Owens & Minor for a medical sales job and they are requiring me to get my RMSR Certification before they would even consider hiring me. I read your post earlier and I am upset that you mislead me. The RMSR is required from many medical device companies and I have wasted time looking for a medical device sales job without it.

Keep in mind that owens and minor is a distributor, not a device company. Distribution is a good foot in the door. I know this because I work for a division of McKesson and did the RMSR training. It certainly did not hurt.

Christopher in Trenton, Ohio said: Hello all,
I am a non-degreed professional in the middle of a career change from the Real Estate and Mortgage Industry to the healthcare field, particularly in medical device sales. My question is, will the RMSR certification, along with my current background be enough to land a career in medical sales or will they also require a 4 year degree?

You can pitch yourself until you are blue in the face but ultimately the convo is going to lead with them saying "contact me when you receive your 4 year degree."

Not true, any form of medical background will work, not just RMSR, and many people with 4 year degrees and strong sales experience that seem capable are able to make the leap over to medical. I am sorry to say it was your resume, not lack of RMSR that lead to you not receiving to job.

Does anybody have ANY advice?

Demonstrating to others that you have been board certified and have met the rigorous standards required for a medical device sales career is something worth pursuing at the first available opportunity. Why wouldn’t you want people to know how qualified you are to do your job as a medical sales rep. My company always looks for a RMSR Certified applicant.

Hi Bill,
I would love to land a job with Stryker. I have applied but never received a call for an interview. I have been looking at the NAMSR and wondered if it is a ligitimate company. I have a bachelor's in business administration, and associate's degree in nursing and have been a nurse for 18 years. The past 6 years have been spent in marketing positions in the healthcare field. I do not have any experience in selling products but I do have experience in selling services. I am currently employed with an Acute Rehab facility that provides physical and occupational therapy for individuals that have had strokes, hip fractures, etc. Any advice you could give me to help me get called for an interview would be greatly appreciated. I have applied at several other companies but my dream job would be with Stryker.

Thank you,
Pamela

I have 7 years’ experience in Animal Health Pharmaceuticals. I have won numerous awards as well. So I have a good sales background. I sold directly to Veterinarians and want to get in to Medical Device Sales because I like to close and be directly responsible for my performance. I fear Human Pharma sales will not be as good a fit as so much of the decisions are affected by insurance companies. Would the RMSR be of benefit to me to land a Medical Device Sales job?

Mike Carlton in Claremont/Hickory, North Carolina said: I have a BA in Accounting and own my own Construction, Real Estate and Land Development Companies for 8 years now and sales is a big part of my job. Due to the economic circumstances I have to change careers so I enrolled in my local university that offers an MBA in Health Care Administration which will hopefully teach me the INS and OUTS of a hospital environment. I then came across information about NAMSR-RMSR. My question is, from a HR/Hiring stand point will one help more than the other and/or am I wasting time and a lot of money on the MBA to break into this industry when all I need is the RMSR. Or is there any other training or education (different MBA) that would be helpful?[/QUOTE

I work in HR so let me give you my two cents . . . You should not need an MBA to break into sales role. You will probably need some of the MBA coursework later on especially when dealing with c-level folks. By then, I would suggest you take advantage of any tuition reimbursement offered by your employer or take a few targeted courses in Finance, Marketing, and Strategy.

I took the NAMSR Course and it worked for me. I work in diagnostic testing and love it. I was trying for orthopedic sales but this job should be a gateway into that. The rmsr training was well noted throughout my interview process. If you took the course and still are looking for work make a note to apply to diagnostic companies as many are hiring. Spend time applying for jobs and not whining on blogs and that might help some of those above. This training and certification can only qualify you for a medical sales career and not get you the job. An investment in a new career through vocational training was a good idea for me and also is important to your potential employer.

Hello,
I have a BA in exercise science and a doctorate degree in Physical Therapy. I currently am working as a facility director at an outpatient physical therapy clinic and handle the patient caseload at an assisted living facility as well. I have always had an interest in working in the medical sales field, and possibly am considering a future career change. I do not have any experience working in outside sales, but have experience visiting physician offices for the purpose of marketing the outpatient physical therapy clinic. With my education, I have extensive knowledge in many aspects of healthcare and medicine, particularly orthopedics. Would I be considered for a career in medical sales without having outside sales experience? Should I consider the RMSR training program or would my education and career experience in the medical field be sufficient to obtain a quality medical sales rep position? All comments/recommendations would be much appreciated. Thank you

I started to do the training about 6 months ago and although I like the group association, I kind of felt that the book that I had was of mediocre quality as far as editing goes. I did not complete the training, and am going for my Pharmacy Tech cert (home study + local shoppe interning). So, with that said, if you want to buy it, let me know.
