Key outcomes

THOSE who successfully complete one of our training programmes will benefit in a number of significant ways.

They will:

  • Achieve an enhanced position as a partner in a hospital medical team or clinical environment, providing added-value service
  • Add practical skills to internal corporate product and disease-based training
  • Be able to continue their professional education, having gained recognised qualifications
  • Demonstrate to their employers their commitment to continued professional development and education and thus to the organisation as a whole and to colleagues
  • Develop procedural training skills to the same level as surgeons/physicians, elevating the sales status and partnership to new levels
  • Further their professional growth through the acquisition of, or development of, teaching and training skills that meet formal guideline requirements.

HC Skills International promotes measures that are designed to create a contractual link between the hospital and the company representative/medical device industry, tying all parties into the same legal and ethical standards and obligations.

We also support:

  • Setting mandatory training standards for company representatives who access clinical areas
  • Moving towards professional registration
  • Recognition that the role of the company representative in clinical areas is a professional one
  • An open appraisal of the expected role of the CR within the clinical area and transparency of standards
  • A risk assessment of the presence of the CR
