PrepMD candidates are primed for success

PrepMD offers strict selection process, high quality training and world-class clinical partnerships

The PrepMD faculty and placement team has more than 250 years of combined experience in cardiac medical device and healthcare industries. We know what the hiring managers are looking for and understand how successful teams function, and how to spot the kind of talent you need.

We’re committed to growing the talent pool for the medical device industry and the healthcare sector, so we select our students for success. In our initial screening process, we consider:

Academic Background

We favor candidates whose academic or professional backgrounds have laid a foundation of skills necessary for competence as a medical device specialist. This includes nursing, life sciences, and engineering graduates.

Professional Experience

While many of our students are recent college graduates, some have post-collegiate work experience and are looking to change fields. We select professionals with B2B sales, clinical, pharmaceutical, and other healthcare related experience.

Personal Qualities

We look for candidates who are predisposed to be high achievers, with strong intellectual capabilities and exceptional initiative. They typically have strong communication and analytical skills and are compassionate toward patients.

Geographic Preferences

Our candidates are open to working in many different areas of the country.

After the initial screening, candidates typically undergo a series of rigorous personal interviews with members of our staff who have worked as hiring managers in the medical device and healthcare industries. Even before the candidates join our program, they’ve already been vetted for their suitability in sales or clinical roles.

During the Program

PrepMD’s 24-week program is academically rigorous and provides strong foundational knowledge for the students to successfully contribute to the cardiac field. The program is comprised of 9 weeks of core concepts learning followed by 15 weeks of intense hands-on training at our award-winning facility and clinical rotations at Harvard and Tufts affiliated medical centers.

As the program progresses, we rank our students according to their academic achievement and performance. You can see not just who’s on top, but who has specific strengths and skills which may be missing from your current team. This helps you pinpoint which students to interview for immediate hires, and which ones to keep in mind for future roles. Our entire process aims to offer you access to talent that will improve the performance of your teams—and your clinic or business.
