Roanoke, VA – April 28, 2023, CMR Institute, the go-to provider of healthcare educational solutions for pharmaceutical and medical device companies, has been named a finalist in the prestigious 2023 LTEN Excellence Awards. The nomination category is for Industry Partnership, recognizing CMR Institute’s collaboration with one of the world’s leading pharmaceutical companies.

CMR partnered with its client to create programs to train the client’s commercial teams across multiple roles and levels to go to market, transitioning to value-focused engagement and a new hiring model. CMR worked with multiple key stakeholders to identify the challenges, needs, and intended outcomes for learners, which also included industry-naïve reps. CMR created learning journeys for each role and level to fill the training gaps and support the client’s goal for adaptive learning.

Besides learning content, the solution also included designing and developing a custom content delivery portal with SSO capabilities and creating comprehensive coaching and cohort learning guides.

Michelle O’Connor, CEO and President of CMR Institute said, “We’re so thrilled to be nominated for the 2023 LTEN Excellence Awards. We take great pride in our customer partnerships, and to be recognized for one makes it extra special. LTEN is the nation’s only non-profit organization devoted to strengthening training in the healthcare industry.
