    The program gave me an in-depth understanding of the role of a Pharmacovigilance Associate in Clinical Research and Pharmacovigilance department. With the practical examples and lectures from professionals I gained a clear understanding about the practical applications needed for work. Very good course work!

    The best part about DSA-Pharmacovigilance training is presentations which clearly mention the important and key points that are helpful for building basics in the subject. I found the exercises helpful in understanding the format on how to fill the forms and analyzing the data which will be useful in real time for me.
