"This course is very relevant for everyone who works in the pharma industry, even if you do not have tasks that directly relate to interaction with HCPs. It is always good to know how to behave, especially when it is so restrictive. Furthermore, the course has really good lecturers, and you feel very welcome – Atrium is a place I would very much like to take a course again."
