Pharmaceutical sales representatives are tasked with marketing and distributing drug samples produced by their pharmaceutical companies  to various medical or veterinarian professionals.  They are not ordinary sales reps and require extensive knowledge about their products and must often have some educational background or at least are familiar with diseases and their treatment. Pharmaceutical medication is rarely advertised to consumer markets and the pharmaceutical sales representative performs the product promotion along with the distribution in one move.
