eLearning for pharma and medical devices


With rapid changes, innovations, and breakthroughs defining this industry,
the focus on training is primary.


The Pharmaceutical and Medical Device industry continues to grow at a rapid pace. Furthermore, Quintiles IMS Institute estimates the industry to reach $1.5 trillion globally by 2020. Increase in human population and improved spending power towards advanced medicines and life sciences is fueling this growth. Consequently, advancing in this field requires achieving greater breakthroughs and pushing the boundaries of science, therefore, benefiting human lives.

With rapid changes, innovations, and breakthroughs defining this industry, the focus on training is primary. Therefore, training and development within the industry contributes to the progress in improving the science. Also, this industry has demonstrated the importance of innovation repeatedly. As a result, training and development have always supported this industry. Therefore, the only way to achieve greater goals is by continuing this tradition of betterment by investing more in eLearning courses for pharma and medical devices.


  • Rapid changes in products: The industry witnesses rapid introduction of medical devices and drugs on a yearly basis. As a result, almost 500,000 new medical devices and 20,000 new drugs are created each year. Therefore, traditional classroom training as an approach to update and train staff on these changes is inefficient.

  • Shortage of qualified trainers: Traditional training demands the presence of physical trainers who are in short supply. Furthermore, training in the pharma and medical device industry also demands highly qualified trainers who are even harder to find. To summarize, while the industry rapidly grows, the parity between trainer and learners increases. By leveraging eLearning for the medical industry, courses once built can be reused multiple times, thereby making training affordable and efficient.

  • High costs of training: Training costs associated with this industry are high, both financially and physically. Thereby, training teams like sales, manufacturing, and R&D results in high expenditure. In addition, the need to train external doctors, physicians, technicians, and nurses on how to use their products adds to such increasing costs. Thus, large-scale training seminars are held which leads to higher costs.

  • Tracking compliance: There is a pressing need to keep track of employees, channel partners, distributors, and sales personnel completing their compliance training. Consequently, the medical industry is required to maintain high ethical standards when it comes to making product claims, in particular, when manufacturing and promoting drugs.

  • Need for readily available information: There is an absolute requirement for readily available information stores with detailed descriptions and usages of medical products. As a result, eLearning and its varying technologies act as information storage repositories and tools providing readily available information.


  • Reducing classroom training duration: We have created eLearning courses to reduce pharma sales reps’ training periods from 3 weeks to 1.5 weeks, with the rest of the 1.5 weeks of training made available online.
  • Creating courses used by industry sales reps: Our courses are used by industry sales reps on a regular basis to understand and better explain usage of medical products. Learning courses are also designed to train sales rep to convey the importance of products, use cases, and benefits, particularly to doctors, physicians, technicians, and nurses. We have also created courses that help resellers in explaining the usage of consumer-focused medical devices being sold to the end consumer.

  • Creating courses used by doctors and technicians: We have created medical courses used by doctors, physicians, technicians, and nurses to train patients on product usage.

  • Creating animated videos to explain complex issues: Our eLearning courses for pharma covers complex issues through bite-sized animated videos. Here, courses help the learners in grasping complex topics. These animated videos range from 2 minutes to 5 minutes, making the information digestible and easy to refer to.

  • Designing training content to train customers: eNyota creates courses used by organizations to train their channel partners, distributors, vendors, and retailers. Thus ensuring all external agents possess adequate product knowledge. Consequently, it also extends support to sales reps and allows vendors to provide quality customer service to the end users.

  • Creating courses on good manufacturing practices and supply chain awareness: eNyota has created courses that spread awareness on the usage of pharmaceutical and medical devices. Consequently, these courses also cover manufacturing best practices and standards. The courses also provide training on effective product distribution and supply chain awareness. Both of which we can help you achieve.
