Pharmaceutical project managers oversee the development of new medicines or medical equipment. They must be well organized and able to handle working with several different groups of people. They work with the engineers who create the medicines and medical equipment, the doctors who run pharmaceutical trials and the clinical researchers who compile all of the findings in medical trials. They manage these groups collectively to make sure that development is running smoothly and on time. They sometimes must make the difficult decision to stop development and trials if the medicine or medical equipment is causing too many negative effects such as permanent injury or death.
