Drug Safety Recruitment
What is Drug Safety?
Working in drug safety typically involves monitoring and evaluating the safety of pharmaceutical products, including prescription drugs, over-the-counter medications, and vaccines. The primary goal is to identify and mitigate potential risks associated with these products, and to ensure that they are used safely and effectively by patients.
To work in this field, you typically need a background in life sciences or pharmacology, as well as experience in clinical research or drug development. Strong analytical skills, attention to detail, and the ability to communicate complex scientific information to non-experts are also essential. It can be rewarding, as you will be helping to ensure the safety of patients and the public.
