They function as an educational body for those who are working as, or seeking to work as, medical representatives in Ireland. The Institute provides an opportunity for medical representatives to expand their knowledge of clinical practice, to discuss their experiences with colleagues in the pharmaceutical industry, to participate in social and sporting activities and to be part of an organisation which is actively involved in the advancement of its members careers.

Their membership currently stands at over 650 medical representatives, representing 60 pharmaceutical companies.

The Institute is recognised by the State as the examining body for medical representatives in Ireland. The MRII examination was first held in 1987 when four candidates sat the exam. They now hold a membership examination for students annually. This examination is independently set and marked by the academic staff at the Galway Mayo Institute of Technology and Dublin City University.

The Institute organises a variety of educational and social events for its members. The majority of these events are free of charge
