New Starters SIG

The New Starters special interest group is for all statisticians and programmers new to the pharmaceutical industry. The aims of the group include: organising talks, presentations and events relevant to new starters. Further aims include finding out about existing training courses relevant to new starters, and encouraging ongoing discussions to swap stories, advice and experience in order to form a network of support.
