when you say medical rep what do you mean? like medical rep for equipment? or pharmacy? it is EXTREMELY challenging, my BIL is a medical rep well actually he sells replacement orthotics for big doctors and he goes in to help them with surgeries so he has to know a lot of medical terminology and have a stomach for pointing things out and how things fit into the body....it is about the same as being a doctor but you do not need the MD...so it wouuld be tough...if you want to sell go into the interenational wellness industry. You can email me if you want more info about that I can tell you how fun it can be!!
