About the CPD course
The Certificate of Added Qualifications (CAQ) is intended to demonstrate that a candidate has completed a formal education program covering advanced topics in Pharmacovigilance Medical Review; as well as successfully completing examination of cases assessed over a one-year period. Examination documents that candidates can write clear; concise; and compelling Company Comments. Examination also shows that the candidate can apply sound epidemiological principles to assessment of Causality; can apply company conventions; and can comply with regulatory requirements related to the Medical Review of Individual Case Safety Reports (ICSRs).
Our local medical specialty society in Boston has transformed into a society welcoming physicians from across the country and beyond. We promote best practices in pharmacovigilance including medical review, signal detection, and aggregate report writing.
