Discuss two of your professional interests plus one short-term and long-term goal
My first professional interest is Pharmaceutical Epidemiologist. This method of epidemiology focuses on monitoring the safety of pharmaceutical drugs and their exposure. Additionally, pharmaceutical epidemiologist promotes public health and safety by focusing on specific disease and developments within communities (Faubion, n.d.). In addition, Pharmaceutical epidemiologists organize research, based on the outcomes of pharmaceuticals, human health, and wellness, using clinical trials to evaluate social patterns and trends that cause a high risk of health conditions within a population (Faubion, n.d.). Moreover, pharmaceutical epidemiologists use reasoning methods to investigate effects and harm or prescription, over-the-counter medication, immunizations, and medical devices used in communities (Davis, 2021). One Short term goal of mine is to shadow the Epidemiology team to gain a better understanding of their day-to-day activities. One long-term goal will be to further my education with a focus on epidemiology.
My second professional interest would be a Medical Writer. Medical Writers work with the Medical Dr., Pharmacovigilance Scientist, Epidemiologist, Quality and Regulatory teams to compile data for clinical research. The data collected is information pertaining to specific drugs along with exposures and adverse events that are disseminated to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to ensure safety information is compliant with regulatory requirements. I work closely with the Medical writing team, but I do not really know what their day-to-day activities entail. A short-term goal would be to complete a 3-month rotation with the writing group to better understand their processes. In addition, one long-term goal would be to get involved in all the kick-off meetings for reports to continue gaining knowledge and understanding of report writing.
