IPC under its flagship Skill Development Programme has trained many healthcare professionals including doctors and pharmacists to acquire requisite skills for furthering the Pharmacovigilance Programme of India (PvPI) in the country.

This programme is a part of the skill development programme in the country under the government’s ambitious Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana to produce and nurture qualified pharmacovigilance personnel for effective pharmacovigilance (PV).

This is also aimed at enhancing career prospects and employment opportunities in PV in government and private sector, career opportunities in regulatory systems/contract research organizations (CROs) and public health programmes, acquiring basic knowledge in PV and abilities to deliver good PV practices on par with international requirements.

PV is a science that relates to detection, assessment, understanding and prevention of adverse affects or any other drug related problem. To track adverse drug reactions in Indian population, Union health ministry launched PvPI which has outreach all over the country.
Aimed at imparting hands-on training to the young healthcare professionals in the field of PV, the programme aims at enhancing knowledge and skill of qualified pharmacovigilance professionals to ensure patient safety.
