Alumni Profile: Raquel Rogers

RaquelDr Raquel Rogers studied the Certificate in Pharmacoepidemiology and Pharmacovigilance at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine.  Here she talks about her experiences studying the course, and how it has helped her in her career.  "I am a medical Doctor, and before I did the course I was working as a medical policy advisor.  I had an interest in pharmacoepidemiology/pharmacovigilance, but no background in this area, so I decided to study for the certificate at LSHTM.
