I have a bachelor’s degree in Dentistry and have completed PG diploma in clinical research and regulatory affairs. I have the ability to work with the physicians in drug safety to make sure all medical assessments and reviews are reported appropriately. I have experience in using databases like Argus, Medidata rave and Inform. I know and have the ability to use proper terminology, I am familiar with the coding dictionaries (medDRA and WHODD) and I have extensive knowledge of pharmacovigilance regulations and clinical trial methodology.
I have the skills and training needed to monitor and keep track of all mild to serious adverse drug reactions associated with marketed products and with any compounds in clinical trials. I have the training and skills to record all data (along with a summary explaining the source and procedures used) into the database accurately and to make updates as new information becomes available.
I have the interpersonal skills to work well as part of a team and the motivation to work independently. I have exceptional research skills with the ability to collect all data surrounding the adverse effects of drugs from various clinical studies, trials and cases.
I have the ability to stay updated on all new safety guidelines and to adhere to the FDA and International rules and regulations at all times. I have the ability to adapt quickly to a changing environment and to switch priorities when necessary. I also have excellent time management and organizational skills needed to manage large amounts of data.
