Medical Representatives Certification Commission (MRCC®) was founded in 2009 to create and maintain a competency standard for medical representatives and to validate those competencies through certification examination and recertification requirements.
A Need For Standards
The healthcare industry increasingly is demanding transparency, competency, attention to value, and commitment to improving patient outcomes in all its actions. Prescribers rely on representatives for evidence-based information to aid prescribing decisions. To ensure competency as partners in healthcare, representatives must be held to the same validations and ethics protocols of other healthcare professionals. Only then can they fully gain the trust and respect of the medical community.
Certification of competency through examination assures the healthcare community that the MRCC Certified representative is credible and committed to the highest ethical standards.
