A pharmaceutical representative is a sales technician whose job is to promote and sell pharmaceutical and para-pharmaceutical products (family medication, cosmetics, herbal medicines and prosthetics) principally to dispensing pharmacists.
He is particularly in charge of orders for products and should therefore have real skill in negotiating with the pharmacist. Taking responsibility for a geographical area, he should have the same qualities as a medical visitor but above all a commercial temperament.


A programme emphasising the practical implications of the job.
The course runs for 5 months with 4 to 6 weeks internship. As for the course for medical visitors with which this course has a number of points in common, particularly in the scientific content, we have made the choice of timetabling and of quality for a small number of students (about fifteen).
Here again, periods of scientific and professional study alternate with internships.
