The sales assignment entails the selling of Amgen's products to primary care, cardiology, nephrology, oncology, rheumatology or dermatology customers. In some cases, it may also include partnering with Corporate Account Managers to manage strategic partnerships with key customers, or managing specific projects with the Regional/District Sales Managers.
