    Understanding Pharma has been an important training tool for our employees. After reading the book and taking the e-courses available from the Pharmaceutical Institute, I knew that to be successful, we needed to make this offering available to our entire company. --Senior Director of Sales Training at a midsize pharmaceutical company

    I saw Understanding Pharma and immediately made it part of our sales force training program. Our sales reps come from a variety of career backgrounds, mostly non-pharma. With this resource, I am now confident that our representatives will have a broader understanding of how the industry works. --Vice President of Sales at a leading pharmaceutical company

    This is a great resource. The Pharmaceutical Institute has done an excellent job putting together such a comprehensive guide one that does not exist elsewhere in the marketplace. I wish I had this kind of resource when I started out in the industry 20 years ago. --Head, Business & Commercial Analysis at a midsize biotech company
