You’ll develop a wider knowledge of the integral parts of the pharmaceutical industry including research, development, manufacturing, distribution, marketing and sales. We’ll challenge you to debate contemporary or difficult issues and solutions such as drug safety, ethical issues, the readiness of potential drug for clinical trial in humans and pharmacovigilance.
