Success Story

International Medical Doctor to Pharmacovigilance Specialist at McKesson

When I moved to Canada I was a freshly graduated medical doctor without any experience in the pharmaceutical industry and some experience in the clinical research field. I started seeking for an interesting job in the medical area giving that it is very difficult to have equivalency of my medical diploma. It was a long journey! I applied for clinical research entry level jobs, I had interviews but without success! I followed a pharmacovigilance course given by InnoVigilance which permitted to me to discover the PV world, and to have the precious key which allowed me to have an interview at McKesson for the position of pharmacovigilance specialist. I am really grateful to them.
