Pharmaceutical drugs need to work properly and predictably every time a patient takes them, so it makes sense that the industry is so highly regulated! That’s why pharmaceutical drug manufacturers need meticulous professionals like you to make sure that happens.

As a Quality Assurance Technician or Quality Control Technologist, you would make sure that pharmaceutical products are made correctly by following quality-assurance processes, testing products, and recording and analyzing results data during product development and manufacturing. Using a variety of techniques to ensure that the drugs meet strict safety guidelines and regulations would also be a part of your role.
