    Good and easy-to-follow introduction to pharmacovigilance.

    The introductory topic was well covered, but it focussed more on Canadian healthcare. Overall, I gained a lot from it.

    Insightful info about risk management and audits/inspections

    This module made me realize how important is to carry out PV activities beyond what I am used to do in a daily basis. I specially enjoyed the risk management lecture and I think the audit/inspection lecture has a very interesting outlook on how to ensure the quality of PV activities at all times, and what to expect before, during and after audits and inspections.

    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.

    My favorite module so far

    I enjoyed this module so much, it describes the PV operations thoroughly, specially the case processing and medical review lessons are key to understand the core of PV operations. It would have been nice to learn about unanticipated drug reactions, urgent safety measures, INDSRs vs SUSARs and analysis of similar events.

    Exceeded my expectations

    The contents are clearly explained, accurate and well documented, this module brings together all the information needed to have a good knowledge of worldwide PV regulations, pointing out the key points and summarizing the most important data. It would have been better to get to know a bit more about clinical trials regulations, I think it was more focused on post-marketing.
