I just found this site. I'm looking for information about medical device territories in Florida. I'm getting calls from companies outside the area since I changed my job search strategy (check out, but I live in Ft. Lauderdale and would like to stay here (no hurricanes so far this year -- yay!).

If you know of any opportunities in south Florida, please reply to post.

Do you have an idea about the Medical Sales School? is it worth that money?
I am in Ft Lauderdale as well and would love to enter medical sales, I have the education and the clincal experience, but no sales experience.

I don't know about the medical sales school program, although I'm thinking about it once I finally get hired. The program on how to get hired was really helpful.

Good luck.

Hello Ted,

How are you today? I saw your post saying that you are interested in Medical Sales. I was just wondering if you are interested in a sales position that pays on a commission basis (huge 4 figure commissions) or if you would prefer a position that offers a starting salary with small commissions. The reason I ask is because I know of a company that has an awesome medical device that is offered to doctors and dentists. The company also has an incredible health supplement product. I would like to know if you want me to send you more information. I will be starting with this company myself this month. You can reach me at 407-373-5598 or

Have a blessed day.

If you are considering any change, especially a career in medical device sales carefully evaluate your personal situation. An educational progam may be helpful, also looking into smaller companies that are privately held may be a good place to start. A full commision position may not be a good place to start a career in sales, especially if you have not established a robust network of contacts. Always abide by the rule if it sounds to good to be true it probably is. Use the web to evaluate up and comming technologies that give you a place to start. The path is long and twisted but worth it in the end.

I read your message to Ted. I would be interested in this sort of commission if indeed it is a viable solution for doctors. Could you please let me know more about it?

Would you be interested in diversifying?

I found you from the Sales & Marketing Network Website and have already set several independent reps up with our services that currently sell compounding creams. If you have a team of sales leaders that you currently work with, we can pay you our highest commission level so you can take an override on what your group sells or you can take a direct commission.

We are a genetic and toxicology laboratory that services physicians to help monitor prescribed medications through urine and saliva testing.

If you’re people are in the Pain Management, Ortho, Primary Care or OB/GYN may have the relationships established to be successful in this space.

Email me for more information!
