Tell us something about your previous qualifications and work experience

I started my career way back in 2001 as a registered pharmacist in a retail pharmacy after completing my diploma in pharmacy. However, I was interested in learning further. Hence, I enrolled in B.Pharm in 2003 and completed in 2007. Thereafter, I joined TCS in July 2007 as Drug Safety Associate and used to process clinical, spontaneous and literature cases. Later, in 2010 I joined Sciformix Technologies as Medical Writer and was responsible for drafting safety reports like PSUR, PADERs, ASRs, Canadian Annual Reports. In Dec 2011 I joined Cactus Communications as a Data QC specialist and was responsible for quality control of wide array of documents ranging from integrated summary of safety, efficacy, CSRs, Manuscripts, etc. I had to leave from there as I had to travel to Australia for personal reasons. I joined back in TCS as a Business Process Lead and currently I am responsible for authoring aggregate reports and managing a small team of 5 writers.
