My name is Dr. med. vet. Katharina W. and I've been employed as a vet specialising in pharmacovigilance in the company's Animal Health business since 2012. My job is to ensure the safety of veterinary drugs. I analyse and assess reports of side-effects caused by veterinary drugs and discuss them with colleagues and authorities around the world.
Prerequisites for this job include experience in veterinary practice, lots of interest in veterinary pharmacology and a good knowledge of English. Our team is rather small compared to our global area of responsibility – but we're wholly dedicated to our work. We're in contact with staff around the world and also work on an interdisciplinary basis with colleagues working in authorisation or those in clinics and units who manage the societal side of what we do.
