Professional Certification Representation (PRC)
As a requirement, all medical sales representatives must complete industry credentialing prior to entering an operating room.  Knowing hospital protocol and operating room etiquette is a must. Most company sponsored training programs spend less than a day covering this subject matter. At the Medical Sales College, we offer the best-trained professional representatives for the benefit of the employer, hospital and patient safety. In addition, as a selling representative, you work with several departments at the hospital. In our PRC certification, a student of the Medical Sales College takes it a step further. You will spend ½ a day touring all departments at a hospital. You will meet and discuss representative responsibilities with hospital personnel. A typical representative learns by trial and error. At the Medical Sales College we want to give you every advantage to succeed. We take no chances. Outside of hospital protocol and operating room etiquette, we also cover industry regulations. The following is a complete list of requirements and education during the first four days.

  • Introduction to the Operating Room
  • Fire Safety; Laser; Radiation; Electrical Biomedical

Industry Information – MDRepTrack Introduction
In 2016, the Medical Sales College launched its affiliation with MDRepTrack (MDRT). MDRT was designed as a game-changing software system specifically built for the medical device industry.  The software will assist the Medical Sales College student in three distinct ways. First, it works as an electronic textbook for our graduates to maintain all of the information learned at the Medical Sales College. Second, it makes the graduates of the Medical Sales College more prepared for an interview as a highly differentiated candidate.  Lastly, it is a fully functioning CRM system that will assist in the success of a representative while in the field. The graduates of the Medical Sales College are getting access to this software before the commercial launch to device manufactures. The following is a complete list of requirements and education of MDRepTrack. In total you will complete 7 modules. The first five are below. The last two are in week six.

Biologics
One of the fast growing segments in medical sales is biologics. With the introduction of new technologies such as: stem cells, amniotic tissue membrane, synthetics and newer allografts are changing the landscape. Most representatives in the field have a low-degree of understanding in this area. Like PRC, most company sponsored training programs spend less than one day on biologics (some as little as a couple of hours).  At the Medical Sales College, we understand that an expert in biologics is high in demand. We spend the time necessary to get you more than just acquainted with biologics. The following is a complete list of requirements and education during the four days of biologics.

Dynamic Consultative Selling – DCS

Dynamic – High Activity, Energy, Effective Action
Consultative – Consultant, Expert, Professional Advice
Selling – Product, Yourself

The demand of DCS was immediate. Over 20 leading medical device companies participated in corporate sponsored training for their existing selling representatives. With more than 2,000 representatives trained on DCS, it is now the largest and most popular selling platform available for the medical sales industry.
