The ABPI Medical Representatives Exam is taken by representatives who call upon doctors, dentists and other UK prescribers and/or promote medicines on the basis of their therapeutic properties. It must be taken by all medical representatives working for companies who have agreed to abide by the ABPI Code of Practice for the Pharmaceutical Industry; this includes virtually all pharmaceutical companies operating in the UK.
Medical representatives who call upon doctors and other prescribers and/or promote medicines on the basis of their therapeutic properties must take the exam within one year of employment in such a role and prior to passing the exam cannot be engaged in this type of employment for more than two years.
'Studying hard for the exam was well worth the end result for both myself and my employer as I feel much more confident in ensuring ABPI compliance and implementing scientific knowledge when talking to customers.
The qualification has given me a broad understanding of human body systems, disease pathology and various treatments for common disorders as well as an understanding of the NHS. This allows me to have a much deeper understanding of what my customers face on a day to day basis which is fantastic.
Understanding not only the products you promote but these vital aspects of healthcare has allowed for a much more rounded approach to promoting my portfolio.'
Luke, Account Representative
