The Pharmaceutical industry in India is the world's third-largest in terms of volume. Pharma companies require professionals with good communication skills and marketing strategies. Medical Representatives are considered to be the brand ambassador for the Pharma industry where they act as a link between doctors and companies. Pharma executives are the only link between Pharma Companies and Doctors (Customers). The Indian pharmaceutical market is likely to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 14-17 percent in between 2012-16 hence there is plenty of scope for young students to start their career and explore opportunities in emerging Indian pharma industry. In this direction our objective is to:

  • a. Identify the gaps of demand and supply of pharma industry.
  • b. Offer Certificate course for rural graduates to be ready for pharma jobs.

At present there is a huge demand for medical representatives with requisite qualification & training. However due to the disconnect between curriculum and industry, pharma students after graduation are not competent enough to immediately meet the challenges of the industry and the companies in particular as well. To overcome this gap and to plug the demand supply gap of qualified trained medical representatives, CENTAD has taken this initiative to start a certification program for the students, who want to make their career in pharmaceutical industry.

This program would be initiated by CENTAD in association with Centre for Pharma Resources Development.
