“Many people don’t realize how crucial the medical sales rep’s role is during a surgery,” said Jim Rogers, CEO at Medical Sales College. “They are in the OR helping guide the surgeon from start to finish, so it is very important they get practice in that environment. We are always looking for new ways to better prepare our students and maximize their chances of job placement post-graduation. Eventually, they will have a direct influence on surgical outcomes, and now, they can be confident that they will be ready for the challenging environment of the operating room.”
During the Medical Sales College’s leading, comprehensive programs, which include orthobiologics, orthopedic extremity, reconstruction and trauma, and spine and sports medicine, students work towards a specific skill set that positions them for success in device sales, making graduates attractive to hiring managers. With the implementation of Osso VR’s technology at the school, students get an extra edge in this competitive industry with the ability to get hands-on practice far more than the average rep in training. Students and administrators using Osso VR have access to analytics dashboards, receiving feedback regarding their run-throughs and tailored guidance to help them reach proficiency.
“Success in the OR starts with education for both the surgeons and sales reps, and Medical Sales College offers the most robust training and placement options available in this important career,” said Justin Barad, M.D., CEO of Osso VR. “Gaps in training are leading to increased complication rates for patients as newer and more complex technologies and procedures come to market. We are thrilled to have a forward-thinking, innovative partner in Medical Sales College that understands how critical it is to address training gaps and empower new reps entering the market to better assist surgical teams.”
