Introduction to Industry

The training course for statisticians and statistical programmers new to the industry, widely known as the "Introduction to Industry Training Course", has been running since 1986. It aims to broaden the participants' knowledge and appreciation of the drug development process from discovery through to marketing. It enables participants to learn about the role and interaction of Statistics with other disciplines within the industry and also allows them to meet and exchange ideas with statisticians and programmers of a similar level of experience.

There are six sessions (Research, Toxicology, DM/CROs, Clinical Trials, Licensing and Re-imbursement, Marketing) hosted by six companies, each lasting one or two days. Each session includes talks by relevant specialists, workshops to encourage active involvement from the participants and guided tours of relevant work areas.
