Specialist seminars for pharmaceutical employees

PET’s extensive track record working with a large number of pharmaceutical companies over many years has led to a number of specific and practical seminars, including the following:

Scientific and Medical Writing in English

Writing scientific, medical or pharmaceutical texts (clinical studies, PSURs, expert reports, QOS, package inserts, DMFs etc.) is a highly challenging area of work.

Our seminars are aimed at employees from pharmaceutical companies who need to improve their medical writing in English.

Topics covered:

  • Recognising the key aspects of a good English original text
  • Using clear and comprehensible formulations
  • Avoiding typical errors for German-speaking writers
  • Summarising key grammatical aspects
  • The most important phrases and sentence connectors
  • Critically highlighting and improving excerpts from your own texts

The seminar is highly practical and applied – most texts which are analysed and edited come from the participants themselves.

English for pharmaceutical audits

Pharmaceutical audits are often a unique challenge for all employees involved, requiring a great deal of mutual trust and cooperation in the interplay between the business units involved. PET supports you in successfully preparing for your audits and achieving optimal results.

Our one-day seminar “English for Pharmaceutical Audits” reflects the agenda of a typical internal or external audit:

  • Arrival of auditors – meet and greet, orientation, introducing colleagues and responsible staff/positions, introducing the company 
  • Company presentation – optimising the company presentation, presentation training
  • Inspection 1 (production) – audit dos and don'ts, dealing with difficult questions, diplomacy, explaining processes
  • Lunch – small talk, social English, conversation topics
  • Inspection 2 (lab) – summarising the abilities from inspection 1
  • Documentation – summarising and explaining documents such as SOPs
  • Confident answers to auditors’ questions

 

Participants learn about theoretical fundamentals combined with a wide range of practical exercises and strategies. Important elements include realistic simulations as well as the use of video documentation and analysis.
