Meet with all top 30-50 franchise accounts at least 2 times per month
Identify and implement an action plan to drive growth in territory
Focus majority of resources towards targeted physicians
The clinical challenge facing physicians and their patients newly diagnosed with prostate cancer is whether to choose definitive therapy such as surgery or radiation, which have potentially significant complications, or to monitor the patient's cancer through active surveillance or watchful waiting. Unfortunately, existing clinical parameters (PSA, Gleason score, and stage) used to make this difficult decision do not adequately predict which cancers are indolent or aggressive, resulting in both under treatment and overtreatment of men with prostate cancer. Myriad Genetic Laboratories discovered and validated Prolaris

, a novel RNA expression-based prognostic test, to fulfil this pressing unmet clinical need. Prolaris directly measures tumor cell growth characteristics in order to stratify patients with localized prostate cancer according to disease aggressiveness. More than 700 urologists and urologic oncologists in the U.S. have used the test to identify both low-risk patients who may be monitored through active surveillance or watchful waiting, as well as high-risk patients who may benefit from earlier definitive treatment. Prolaris is the only molecular test in its category with 6 peer-reviewed publications supporting its clinical validity and two forthcoming publications that demonstrate significant change in treatment selections as a result of the test.
BS/BA degree and minimum of two years of sales experience, preferably in medical device, pharmaceuticals, or related healthcare services
Able to work independently with strong work ethic
Must demonstrate a high level of scientific/medical knowledge
Must be willing to travel to appointments throughout the territory with occasional overnight responsibilities
Urology experience is desired but not required
