  • This Coursera Specialization is an excellent introduction to the typical iteration component processes of pharmaceutical endeavors (which include not only the pharmaceutical industry in the conventional sense). For the uninitiated but deeply interested in the field like me, the material is extremely useful for understanding such endeavors at a level of detail that seems sufficient to make career-related decisions. Unfortunately, as of this writing, the material in all courses of this Specialization is outdated by at least half a decade, and I hope that the course instructors strongly consider updating the contents as soon as possible.
