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. The course modules were intense enough for me to feel challenged, but they are well spaced and the course materials, workshops and lectures were well defined and gave me sufficient practice so that I was clear at each phase what I needed to focus on. This made it easier to fit in since I was also in full time employment. The lecturers were from academia, regulators and industry consequently they imparted both theory and practical application giving me a working knowledge of the subject. Read more
