    Look no further. Audio tutorials help simplify the concepts. They have an app through which you can download and access the content offline and also take your quizzes while travelling. Helped me learn while on the job. No regrets.

    Enrolment was instant and i didn’t have to follow up with anybody via email. Faculty was responsive and patient in addressing my queries. Access to actual Argus Safety software was provide, not some knock-off application for pharmacovigilance. Impressed!

    As a board-certified physician, I have found this course extremely useful and relevant not only to clinical practice, but to those clinicians looking to expand their opportunities into the pharmaceutical and non-clinical spectrums. Some of the course information covered would have been appropriate to have presented within medical school training and is absolutely applicable to current clinical practice. I am pleased to say that I have learned valuable, clinically relevant information that I can use today, even without a transition to the pharmaceutical environment. Highly recommend this course and found the course trainer(s) extremely helpful in all questions. Only suggestion would be for the course material video slide presentations to have the option to slow down the audio; my function (if available) did not work and listening to lectures with accents not natural to my own did present somewhat challenging, requiring repeated listening to grasp the material.
    Thank you!!
