The pharmaceutical physician - requirements for the position

Here's another PubMed abstract that may be of interest to you if you're thinking about a career in the pharmaceutical industry. It's titled, "The pharmaceutical physician--requirements for the position." Now this paper was published in 1991 in the Eur J Clin Pharmacol. I'm sure many things have changed since 1991, but some fundamental principles are probably still the same.

Here's the abstract from the journal:
Physicians looking for a position as pharmaceutical physician are usually uncertain whether they are suitable for this activity by training and personal abilities. The main requirements are a major interest in therapeutics and research as well as the ability to treat a disease as an entity instead of the individual patient. The pharmaceutical physician is a specialist in the area of drug development. Even by treating populations and diseases his ultimate goal is to contribute to better care for the individual patient. Requirements for training and the personal abilities necessary for the position of a pharmaceutical physician are described and recommendations given for applicants.
Eur J Clin Pharmacol. 1991;41(5):387-91.
PMID: 1761064
