Pharmacovigilance can be defined as a scientific field that deals with determining, verifying, quantifying, analyzing and eliminating ill effects of various medical drugs, devices and biologicals. This is done to improve their safety. Pharmacovigilance can easily be viewed as an anchor of new drugs and devices throughout their life cycle, since the demand for new medical treatments and their legislation is constantly growing.

Since there is a global financial drift, and a great promise from countries like India, Russia, China, Brazil, Singapore etc. the drug development industry is gradually transferring its R & D and pharmacovigilance activities to these regions, because they yield efficiency and cost savings. This has resulted in thousands of new jobs and career avenues for qualified personnel.

The area of regulatory affairs lies at the core of clinical research and pharmacovigilance. The teams working in regulatory affairs should be well-familiarized with all local and international regulations, which are relevant to research, marketing of drugs and so on. Their job is to help facilitate innovation the easiest way possible.
Today’s drug development landscape is known for great competition among the different pharmaceutical companies, and people who have formal training in regulatory affairs take the lead in various projects from a regulatory perspective, making sure that all studies answer to the call of regulatory compliance.

We at the James Lind Institute provide training, aimed at turning aspiring individuals into experienced professionals in the pharmacovigilance and regulatory affairs domain, by providing them with all the up-to-date knowledge necessary. The course is targeted towards providing students with all the practical knowledge and understanding of responsibilities in this field. The candidates accepted into the course are provided a global perspective of the regulatory landscape and acquire all skills required for regulatory strategic planning throughout the product life cycle.
