When pharmaceutical companies look at applicants who have no experience as a pharmaceutical sales rep they look for a combination of sales ability/experience and medical/pharmacology education. It is important to include both types of skills on your resume. The CNPR Certification program was designed to provide aspiring pharmaceutical sales vocational skills that pharmaceutical employers seek. The program provides training in clinical pharmacology, pharmaceutical selling rules, regulations, drug distribution channels, therapeutic drug classes, pharmacokinetics, etc. A pharmaceutical sales rep cannot successfully sell to physicians without having strong pharmacology/medical knowledge.
