* A typical day usually started at 8am, either at medical rounds or personal one on one meetings with health care professionals. When ever possible I would arrange a lunch meeting with a key customer, either at a local restaurant or in the cafeteria in the hospital. The afternoon was spent with a few more key customer calls and then in my home office to type up call notes.
