Clinical Specialist, Medical Devices Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Clinical Specialist, Medical Devices?

Clinical Specialist, Medical Devices in Denver:
"Clinical Specialist."
Pros: I assist neurosurgeons in the operating room during image guided neurosurgery and therefore have a large amount of influence on how the operation goes. I get to travel frequently for my job and I have great relationships with surgeons and hospital staffs in hospitals all over the country. When the job goes well it is extremely satisfying.
Cons: When problems start to arise in cases the job can be extremely stressful. There is also a fair amount of pressure on me to contribute to sales and add more cases, which can be a difficult balance to find since my job hinges completely on my relationships with doctors and coming across as a sales person can sometimes damage my reputation.
