Risk management and drug safety monitoring are exceedingly important for clinical investigators, license holders, and medical product developers.

It is vital that appropriate staff members be familiar with these most basic requirements. This course provides students with a look at the essential aspects of this discipline – both before and after product marketing. The course also discusses how these specifically apply in the USA and in Europe.
