Excellent course in a rich PV training course

I got my first PV position while completing the Silver Certificate course. Here with the Gold Certificate, it builds on this strong foundation, teaching the key mechanics and functions of pharmacovigilance with an international scope. This is key for any PV professional who is looking to enter and thrive in an increasingly competitive PV market.
