About
Pharmacovigilance

Pharmacovigilance is an excellent employment option for pharmacy, medical and life science graduates. It is a scientific discipline that is generally involved with reporting and assessing side effects of medicine. It is mainly due to the function of Pharmacovigilance professionals that the medicines in the market place that we consume are generally safe and all those that are identified hazardous are taken off the market.
Pharmacovigilance professionals constantly monitor the safety of the medicines in clinical trials as well as the medicines previously being marketed in the market. Just after a medicinal side effect is reported, the Pharmacovigilance professionals enter the event in appropriate databases, follow-up with the event to collect additional information and send these reports to regulatory authorities and other appropriate regulatory bodies.
