Very well done and informative. I truly appreciate the Drug process in entirety being broken down into sections that are easy to comprehend. It is obvious the speakers were chosen for their knowledge.
I am really glad to have course offered by california university . Its really helpful for me. And i am thankful to all lecturer, and teachers to explain overall drug development process.\n\nThank you!

I think the Course name should be changed - Drug Development - Clinical Trials through the phases.
It is super useful for people wanting to learn about clinical trials, it is mostly about clinical trials BUT the name of the course doesn't convey this, so a propospective employer in clinical trials wont care about this course because the name isnt informative enough about what you taught

This course adequately introduced the issues and the reality of the drug development process through the several expert presenters. Being interested in this field as an outsider, I appreciate the level of detail shared in the course. However, similar to the first part of the Coursera Specialization where this course belongs, the material seems outdated as well.
par Vanja T•
Very good talks and presentations, amazing speakers, lots of interesting information, very valuable course.
But OLD - the course needs major renewal, with new data and new talks. Same for power point presentations: most of them are totally useless, hard to understand and follow and just do not look nice. Please prepare better presentations for the next course.
par Brendan D•
Overall the content was relevant to drug development and presented in an organized manner. The presenters seemed to have a wealth of experience in development. This was my first time using Coursera and I enjoyed being able to pick up where I left off. I was disappointed with the course transcriptions as there were many inaccuracies.

I recommend this course together with Drug Discovery and Drug commercialization to everybody that would like to have an overview of pharmaceutical industry, however one should also keep in mind that these lectures are from 2013. It would be better if the lectures were more up to date. Then, I would give 5 stars.
par Jamal E•
The course is enriched with a lot of information that I learnt, but its just the first and second weeks tutors aren't suitable for teaching, their dialects aren't English. But all in all it was a great course and I may return and take the other 2 courses in this specialization.

How glad i am, this was fantastic, its an excellent course and i believe i have done tremendously well. Thank you UC SAN DIEGO in collaboration with coursera, i wish to progress to my masters degree if i can get an opportunity to the university of UC SAN DIEGO.
par Momchil N•
I truly enjoyed the lecture content and am thankful for the course.
For me, the lectures in week 3 need to be updated and changed. I was confused by the two lecturers taking on each other. I found the lecture material of the others speakers better organized
par George W•
This is an informative course on clinical trial development and regulatory considerations of drug development. However, I wish the course content is more updated and organized. The lecture videos are the just recordings from their classes in 2013.
par Ashwini K•
Course materials are useful, lectures are very easy to understand, some of the video / sound editing is a bit unclear, since you can't see the presenter talk when the slides are being shown. Overall, a great intro to drug development.
par Abram S•
Robust review of the intricacies of the clinical trial process and economic considerations throughout. My only regret is that the data is a bit dated (ending 2012/13) and I am curious to see how things have shifted since then.
par Jonathan P•
The course started well. But the course about Phase 2 was difficult to digest. Even worst, the course about NDA was long, repetitive, with old data (as old as 2003 !) and some regulation from 2009 ! It need a serious update.
par Amjad N•
Overall, I liked this course. There are some improvements I would suggest: > list online resources more clearly > define acronyms and provide better definitions > quizzes need to be longer and slightly more challenging
par Subramanian K•
The drug labeling seminar was not very informative. Both the presenters seemed to be wanting to go one-up on the other with their respective experiences. The entire session was too casual to be labeled as a lecture.
par Elena B•
I would like to see more updated information (i.e. more information on biologicals), current presentation is a bit old (from 2008-2010?)
But it provides good general overview of the clinical development process.
par Divya G•
I liked the content but I feel it wasn't very engaging and each slide had a lot of text. If there were peer review assignments and activities other than quizzes, the course would have been more interesting.
par Dr. V A•
The course was informative and found exactly at the time of need. I was a little disappointed because it's not the latest updated version. looking forward to the updated version of the course.
par Suda J•
It is really informative and nice to learn about such a vast and growing industry. The only complain I have is all the data was from 2012 which has now either been changed or updated.
par Savind C•
The course should be updated. Most of the data presented is almost a decade old. Also, The person who teaches about Phase II trails is not clear, and it is hard to understand him.
par Mary S•
I would have loved to have a specific case study to follow as an example of how a drug goes through the whole life cycle as the course felt a bit too high-level overview at times.
The course is well organized, but it requires an update of the contents.
It is good for starting and refreshing the topic of clinical trials. I look for the next updated one!
par Urjita J•
Very detailed and conceptually clear information. lectures are very well designed for online learning. Good distribution of the entire drug dev. procedure. Learnt a lot!
par Hussein S•
Provides a good overview on drug development phases and challenges. Some lecturers are from the industry which gives a practical feeling to the whole process.
par Sebastian F•
Very well presented, very interesting. As many already mentioned unfortunately the material and data is a little out of date. Nevertheless, very good course.
par Muhamed S E•
Great Course , although i had some hardships understanding some parts and i had to search it online on my own ,, but overall i would recommend it !
