PharmD graduates are completely eligible for more than 1000 jobs by Pharmaceutical Industries including PHARMACOVIGILANCE. The National Pharmacovigilance Programme was officially inaugurated by the Honorable Health Minister Dr.Anbumani Ramadoss on 23 November, 2004 at New Delhi. Pharmacovigilance is defined as the detection, assessment and prevention of adverse drug reactions in humans. It is the process of: * Monitoring medicines as used in everyday practice to identify previously unrecognized adverse effects or changes in the patterns of their adverse effects * Assessing the risks and benefits of medicines in order to determine what action, if any, is necessary to improve their safe use * Providing information to users to optimize safe and effective use of medicines * Monitoring the impact of any action taken The specific aims of the Pharmacovigilance Programme are to: * contribute to the regulatory assessment of benefit, harm, effectiveness and risk of medicines, encouraging their safe, rational and more effective (including cost effective) use. * improve patient care and safety in relation to use of medicines and all medical and paramedical interventions. * improve public health and safety in relation to use of medicines. * promote understanding, education and clinical training in pharmacovigilance and its effective communication to the public. The Programme aims to foster the culture of ADR notification in its first year of operation and subsequently aims to generate broad based ADR data on the Indian population and share the information with global health-care community through WHO-UMC. THE NATIONAL PHARMACOVIGILANCE CENTRE AT CDSCO The National Pharmacovigilance Centre is based at CDSCO and shall: 1. monitor the adverse drug reactions of medicines in order to identify previously unexpected adverse drug reactions or indicate that certain reactions occur more commonly than previously believed. This will include the collation, review and evaluation of all spontaneous ADR reports received by the unit on a nation-wide basis. This information will then be keyed into the ADR database for use in aggregate analysis. These reports shall also be submitted to the WHO International Drug Monitoring Programme for international collaboration on drug safety. 2. review Periodic Safety Update Reports (PSURs) submitted by pharmaceutical companies. Pharmaceutical companies are required to submit the PSURs of all new chemicals drugs. PSURs shall be expected to be submitted every 6 monthly for the first 2 years of marketing in India, and annually for the subsequent 2 years. 3. maintain contacts with international regulatory bodies working in pharmacovigilance and exchange information on drug safety. 4. assess the regulatory information relating to safety in order to determine what action, if necessary, needs to be taken to improve safe use. Based on the available data, the Advisory Committee shall make recommendations on product label amendments, product withdrawals and suspension. 5. provide information to end-users through adverse drug reaction news, bulletins, drug alerts and seminars.

Dear Sir, This is good collection of information.

Dear Mr. Dixon Thomas You have given wonderful news to B.Pharm graduates. I also heard this news. I heard that, in the western countries, every company must file a pharmacovigilance report, every year on each one of its products. This job is to be done by B.pharms. I think it is a goldmine for pharmacy. We must inform them of these jobs and motivate them to take them. We must hold workshops on pharmacovigilance. Vijaya Ratna

The book covers more than 100 industry oriented case scenarios and basic concepts of pharmacovigilance which will give idea for fresh students who wants to enter into the field of pharmacovigilance. I like to send complimentary copies of my book to your institution. Kindly provide the communication address to which I can courier the books.

Well I suspect PHARM D and M.Pharm (Pharmacy practice) people would have a great future in Pharmacovigilance area... Will B.Pharm graduates also eligible to this jobs at graduate level or post graduation is need with any specified specialization like Pharmacology or others??

Dear sir, I hope many students take note of this information because students in B.Pharm as well as prospective students interested in Pharm.D programs have many doubts as regards their future career if they take up this course. This blog gives them something to think about. Thank you for sharing such valuable information sir.
