Abstract
  • Drug safety and pharmacovigilance have been brought to scrutiny of the public eye via the media through many recent marketed drug recalls and congressional hearings involving the Food and Drug Administration. There is currently no formal education program, no professional certification and no list of core competencies for drug safety professionals in the US. This paper will review the literature of the science of drug safety, the current regulatory climate of drug safety and also examine the current resources for drug safety professionals to continue their education. This paper provides recommendations for a core set of competencies for drug safety professionals.
