Pharmacovigilance (Drug safety) is a crucial aspect in the development of new drugs as well as the continued marketing of drugs available in the market. Pharmaceutical companies are required by law to ensure that the drugs that they develop are safe for the population and thus many steps are undertaken throughout the life cycle of a drug to ensure that safety data is collected, analysed and reported appropriately. The area of drug safety is coming up in a big way in developing countries while opportunities are also growing in developed countries. People trained in pharmacovigilance can explore career opportunities in pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, pharma IT companies, and even regulatory agencies.


Clinical Data Management on the other hand plays a very important role in managing the huge amount of data that is obtained during clinical trials. Data management professionals ensure that the data is managed by means of specialized software's such as Oracle Clinical, Medidata Rave etc. so that the data is error free, accurate and ready for analysis by biostatisticians. Data management staff also develop the data management plan before data collection begins and develop various tools used by the research staff for collecting data. The data management staff works closely with the clinical operations department, medical writers, biostatisticians, regulatory affairs teams and many other functional teams. People trained in data management can explore careers in contract research organizations, pharmaceutical companies, pharma IT companies etc.



The APGDP-DM program has been developed keeping in mind the expectations of employers who frequently hire pharmacovigilance and data management professionals. The program is completely industry oriented and provides students with a stimulating learning experience, via the online study portal.
