Oracle Empirica Signal – software access is included.



Oracle Empirica Signal is an online eLearning course that covers basic and advanced concepts of signal detection using the Empirica Signal application. The course starts with an Overview of Empirica Signal and then covers a more detailed look in how it is used to detect, validate, confirm and prioritize signals in pharmacovigilance as well as recommending the necessary actions that need to be taken. It is intended for students and clinical research professional who are willing to make a career in Pharmacovigilance Signal Detection using the Empirica Signal platform.

The course includes hands-on practical training on Oracle Empirica Signal software used as a de-facto standard for signal detection in pharmacovigilance.

The program is made up of 1 module, 8 topics and 9 Quizzes. It provides an Introduction to Signal Detection, Empirica Signal user interface and features, and then goes on to explain the process of Pharmacovigilance signal detection and prioritization in Empirica Signal. The course covers all the Tabs in the Empirica Signal software, the concepts of Queries and Case Series and the task of creating data mining runs which are the basic units of signal detection. The various forms of displaying the signal detection results such as different Graphical representations are also covered. Finally the course covers Drug Profiles, Reporting and Empirica Signal Topics.

On completing your enrolment for the Empirica Signal program you will instantly get access to our online learning portal and the Empirica Signal software.

This course includes access to latest version of Oracle Empirica Signal – version 9.2 for hands on practical experience.

    Very good program for learning the basics of signal detection and Empirica Signal software. Recorded demonstrations to follow. Access to Empirica test environment to practice skills learned. Staff very responsive to questions.

  2. Akina Teikoku

    Just completed this program. As promised on the course description page received access to the latest version of Empirica Signal 9.2 which is great as i did not come across any other institution offering this latest version. Most institutions offer access to Empirica 7 which is already redundant. The recorded sessions help me learn and practice at my pace. Very glad i went for this program!

  3. Paul Peters

    Great program. Learnt several practical aspects of signal detection in pharmacovigilance using the Oracle Empirica Signal software which were useful in my job as a safety reviewer.

  4. Diksha Patil

    Niche course on Signal detection using Oracle Empirica Signal. Received access to the software as promised and the recorded sessions were clear and comprehensive. Would recommend this course!

  5. Nighat Ali (verified owner)

    The best thing about this place is, the help which Nitin provides. The faculty response time is very good too. But for me Nitin found out the issue, it was I guess technical. I was ready to give up with this course and the Clinskill academy. It was a last resort that I contacted Nitin. he is excellent, especially realizing that although it daytime for me , he is working night. I do hope he is being paid good bucks. Five stars for Nitin and Clinskill

  6. Mirabel Weriwoh (verified owner)

    I recommend this course to any individual who is interested in both the knowledge and practical aspect of Empirica Signal for signal detection. I truly liked the fact that, I had access to the Empirica Signal software and at an affordable cost as well. Very organized and structured program. Wonderful and amazing faculty and staff support. Thanks Clinskill faculty and staff for all your amazing support!!!!!!

  7. Tapsi

    Recommend this course. Detailed and explanatory. But i recommend should have knowledge of Pharmacovigilance and case processing before taking this up.

  8. Amal Bashir

    Just what i was looking for. Upgraded me from a Pharmacovigilance Associate to a high-demand Pharmacovigilance Signal Detection professional. Recommend it!

  9. Erica Young

    Just completed this program and i would recommend it for the quality of the instructions and the ability to access the Empirica software and practice on the concepts learnt.

  10. Rayan Kasju

    Just completed this program and found it extremely useful. The access to Empirica Signal software gave me the necessary practical experience. I am more confident now to apply for positions in signal detection in drug safety.

  11. Sukanta Rao

    Received 24×7 access to Oracle Empirica Signal software. Helped me learn real-time on actual cases. Recommend this program.

  12. Catherine Goetz

    I am an experienced Pharmacovigilance professional and wanted to specialise in Signal Detection in Pharmacovigilance. Researched a lot of training institutes. Either they were only teaching theory of Signal detection in pharmacovigilance or just had a couple of chapters on this subject as part of their pharmacovigilance program. This program specifically covers Signal detection in Pharmacovigilance in great level of detail and provides access to the Oracle Empirica Signal software. This helped me get the practical knowledge. If you are planning to go into Signal detection in PV, don’t look any further. Really happy to have persued this program!

  13. Kiran Shah

    Faculty was very responsive. Provided answers to all my queries. Quizzes after each chapter helped me very much. Overall really liked the course.

  14. Tanya Meher

    Received access to Oracle Empirica Signal. Helped me practice on creating and executing data mining runs on pharmacovigilance case data to understand how signals are detected. Great experience!

  15. Maria Garcia

    Recorded sessions were very helpful! Faculty demonstrated all features of Oracle Empirica Signal software and how they are used for Signal detection.
