FYI --For this Board.
I became a member of the NAMSR about 6 months ago and then went through their RMSR training. I was coming from 2 years in pharma sales and wanted more managed care information, industry info, and sales training for the medical device industry. To tell you the truth the RMSR Manual was very thorough and covered topics from Operating Room etiquette to HIPAA regulations. I actully also received my HIPAA certification through the NAMSR as well. My experience has all been positive with the NAMSR. They have about 275 medical device company contacts in their employment center and all of the companies I contacted where quite aware of the NAMSR. I have interviewed with some smaller medical distribution companies that are not aware of the RMSR or NAMSR. Their pricing is ridiculous cheap (RMSR Program $225) as I have inquired about other Medical Sales Vocational Training and some of them were over $2000. So for what you pay they have a great product and services.

I am going on my 2nd interview with Stryker tomorrow and want to see if anyone has any advice? I have 4 years of sales experience in consumer goods and this would be my first medical device sales position. I have put together a strong sales brag book, completed my RMSR training through the NAMSR and have sales reports showing mi ranking in the top 10 of my company. Is this enough to get hired? I was told I got through my first interview and on to the next because of my sales experience combined with my recent medical eduction (RMSR). What kind of questions can I expect?

Make sure to demonstrate that you do not mind being in an Operating Room alot. Most of Stryker's jobs are demonstrating or overseeing a new hip replacement product, which requires the rep to be in the operating room with a physician who is using the product for the first time. Stryker pays well and they are one of the top companies to work for. To get the job just demonstrate your sales ability and discuss your medical knowledge. Good luck!!

I've been trying all angles to get back into medical sales after being out of it for a very long time. The truth is, why would they hire me before they hired someone with years of experience. I found the NAMSR with their claims about how the RMSR training is your entree into medical sales. This is one of those, "if it seems too good to be true, then it is" deals. I have a relative-in-law who is a World Wide Manager in Sales Training for a division of J & J and I asked him about the NAMSR. He does not know anything about them. He asked the J & J recruiting office and some of their division and regional managers, and they are not aware of them either. I was also told that with the present state of the economy, even J & J is facing massive layoffs (900 sales reps/managers recently). With all these highly trained and proven successful candidates becoming available, there is no reason to expect that a $295 online course is going to do anything except put $295 in someone's pocket.

New sales training strategies need to take place as the medical device companies do not have the luxury of being able to do the same things as before the new sales rules and guidelines. The emphasis is more on having a quality and educated exchange with the physicians. According to the Society of Pharmaceutical, Medical and Biotech Trainers (SPBT). "E-learning is becoming an effective tool for certain part of medical sales training. We are seeing medical device companies increase their use of technology and e-training."

RMSR Training is becoming more popular as medical companies look to hire new reps with some industry education and training. According to the National Association of Medical Sales Representatives - NAMSR, "We have seen a large number of requests to speak to our trained RMSR students. One of our training programs is geared to candidates who are looking to break into a medical sales career. The training is offered as a web based training program through the association. By obtaining a RMSR, medical sales candidates will possess the industry and product knowledge that medical device companies are looking for."

If you want to enter a medical sales career in 2009 you better have your RMSR Certification.

I have been interviewing with several medical device companies over the last few weeks and most of them have asked if I have taken RMSR Training. There must be some validity to the RMSR Training if these medical companies keep asking for it. I have not signed up for the RMSR yet but I am strongly considering it.

The RMSR Certification helped me obtain medical sales interviews and was then the decisive factor for me getting hired last week. My employer is confident in my ability to perform successfully in the medical sales field because of my RMSR Certification. I now have strong medical industry knowledge with accredited proof of my skills which has paid off in hard cash with my excellent base salary. Thank you Diane, Ryan and all of the other NAMSR staff members.

if a recruiter told you or infered that you get namsr certified in order to get a leg up on the competition to get hired, i'd see if that recruiter is either getting kick backs for referrals or if they are part of the namsr organization.
no one seriously considers namsr as a legitimate certification. if i saw that on a resume it would end up in the dnc file.
spend your money on learning interview skills or getting your resume up to speed.
it's a sales job people. focus on telling your story about sales accomplishments and learning how to sound intelligent.
btw, you should do your homework and survey the people who interview you and ask their op.

As a recruiter for orthopedic and ENT medical sales reps I know my medical device clients prefer and 3 of them require the RMSR. If you have a strong medical background you may test out of the RMSR Training. If you are coming into the industry with limited medical background or no medical sales experience the RMSR is a really good to get in order to qualify yourself for medical sales openings. Certainly a successful sales background is important. I suggest the RMSR Certification to all of my applicant clients.

As a veteran in the industry for 14 years (Cardio 8, Orthopedics 6) I can tell you honestly that the industry is growing rapidly. I have hundreds of colleagues in the industry and what I have heard from them is that the majority of their companies are hiring presently. I recommend to other people all of the time to get into medical sales. It is a very technical industry and you must keep up with all of the new medical info and deal with changes in managed care. It is important for all reps to maintain Continuing Medical Education and my company always encourages getting more training. Anyone telling you otherwise must not be a current Medical Device Rep. Seek one out and ask them yourself.

glad to have found this, it seems the general consensus is that the RMSR certificate for the Medical Device sales industry is worth it. I had no idea one had to have a certificate for medical device sales. This sounds a bit more interesting than pharma. I had applied for a job here in Phoenix for a medical device sales job, but nothing came of it. Erica Jonas in Minnesota....how is the studying going? I dont quite understand about purchasing a recruiter???

Any other information on medical device sales? I am going to order the RMSR Training course today. I have the BA, over 14 years in one of the toughest sales area...automotive paint to collision centers....and the time to start on certification....ps, if anyone needs help when it comes to car paint let me know!

one has to go into an interview rather humble. Your posts suggests you pontificate a lot. And I bet your resume' is totally full of stuff. Take some of it out; leave somthing to the imagination.

I have a very strong medical background but I need career advancement and ability to work more independently. I plan to take the RMSR but I'm worried this won't be enough with such little sales experience that I have; even though my medical knowledge is pretty extensive. I certainly have the right personality and knowledge for the industry but the question is will my lack of sales experience make the RMSR a total waste of my time? Thanks.

Any medical device company that you interview with will always ask for or expect that you have your RMSR Certification. Anyone, in this blog stating otherwise is certainly misinformed or ignorant. Companies require medical device industry knowledge and/or training from applicants, just try getting interviews without it as it will not happen. So just ask the Human Resource staff at medical device companies and they will tell you to get your RMSR Certification.

There is always a risk when taking a course from an institution that you probably know very little about. Certainly, the National Association of Medical Sales Reps is well recognized by medical device companies and the industry sales reps. Sometimes you have to take a leap of faith. Because of what I heard from some medical device reps, I felt that it would be o.k. but still I was nervous that it could turn out to be a Mickey Mouse course. Paying for the course ($245) can be an expensive endeavor for some of us.

As an experienced business woman, I was feeling a little cynical, but actually the RMSR course exceeded my expectations. I found all of the industry information to be comprehensive, informative, enlightening and really preparing students to have a good foundation prior to embarking into this very tecnical business.

I would certainly recommend the RMSR course because not only did I learn alot but it did lead to me accepting a medical device sales rep position. I have read some negative comments above and believe me there is no way that any medical company would look at industry training and education as a negative. Those comments are from misinformed bloggers. The RMSR Certification was certainly the main factor in obtaining my initial interviews with over 5 different medical equipment companies. I will tell you that I was offered a job because I interview very well. I typically do not respond to these type of blogs but felt that someone needed to set the record straight here.

First, certification training listed on your resume demonstrates your education, technical skills and ability to sell medical devices; this is no small task in the medical industry where skills can become obsolete as quickly as they became cutting edge. Second, it shows that you take initiative, a trait many employers look for. The medical field continues to be a worker's market. Almost anyone who's any good at all is able to get work. But when it comes to landing just the position you're after, you'll always benefit by differentiating yourself from your competitors, especially when it comes to the more desirable positions. Usually those with higher salaries and cutting edge work will have plenty of applicants lining up for consideration. Picture a hiring manager sorting through a pile of resumes, searching for clues that elevate one candidate above another.

Changing careers is never easy, even if you aren't satisfied with your current job. Joining a new profession usually means you will have to learn some new skills, which can be challenging. However, if you're committed to switching professions, Medical Sales Jobs may be right for you. Medical device manufacturers and other medical equipment industry leaders are always looking for new talent who have acquired industry training through the RMSR Certification Program (Vocational Medical Device Sales Training).

The first step to finding a medical equipment sales job is to get your information out there. Tailor your resume to highlight any sales skills with the RMSR Certificaton. Send it to companies you are interested in or post it on an online job-seeking Web site.

I recently went through 2 interviews with J & J Ethicon and was just informed that I was beat out by 2 RMSR certified candidates. I just did a google seach and found this information about the RMSR training and certification. It must be important to have the RMSR.

Every medical sales interview I have obtained over the last 4 weeks was because I had a RMSR Certification on my resume.

if people think they can get into medical device sales with no or very liitle industry educaton or training, then they are wrong.........whether it is the RMSR or AIMS or other industry training and designations, they are important and necessary to have on a resume.... companies will only interview candidates who no something about the medical field

The RMSR Certification was a wise investment for me. It led to several interviews and eventually a job with Medline.
