Mention a career in the Regulatory World and most young scientists will not know what you are talking about. The lack of awareness arises because, aside from a small collection of advanced educational programs in regulatory affairs, science curricula are not designed with this profession in mind. Yet jobs in the regulatory world can provide a rich and rewarding career path for scientists. One regulatory affairs society describes this field as "vital to making safe and effective health care products available worldwide." But this rather indistinct description fails to capture the true character of this satisfying occupation. Although careers in the Regulatory World are diverse, a closer study of the career paths and views of the true regulatory professionals will help illuminate the nature of regulatory affairs careers. Professionals in the Regulatory World advise young regulatory job seekers to do their research and see what is out there. Today most people pursuing a degree have no clue what to do with the degree after graduation. It never occurs to them that this type of jobs exists. They must strive to keep their skills broad like obtaining management skills, communication skills, and admin experience rather than focusing purely on the science. It is the continued learning process to keep current with the latest scientific and regulatory developments that most regulatory professionals appreciate most about their jobs in the Regulatory World.
