This show and ALL Pharma Marketing Talk shows are available as podcasts via PMT on iTunes (FREE!).
We discuss how the online pharma promotion landscape has changed, and which types of programs garner the largest audience as well as how the rep relationship is evolving and the role of new technologies such as tablets.
