A Day In The Life Of…A Drug Sample

A day in the life of a pharmaceutical sales representative encompasses a lot of different roles. From teacher and presenter to a rolling pharmacy on wheels, reps are responsible for delivering multiple sample prescription products to doctors. Besides spending a good deal of time in an office during the week, a much greater amount of time will be spent driving back and forth to visit different clients, sometimes as much 150 miles or more in one given day.

While it is essential that a drug representative know everything there is to know about the product they are promoting for their company, a crucial element that can be forgotten in the reps training regimen or daily activity schedule is the effects of temperature on their product over time.
