Abstract: In this interview, Professor Peter Stonier shares his personal perspectives and experience with Carl Naraynassamy over various aspects of professionalism in the pharmaceutical industry, and particularly on the place of education, competence, and professional bodies. Professor Stonier explains his support for the revalidation programme for pharmaceutical physicians in the UK, and argues the merits of inter-disciplinary learning, and the e-portfolio for a record of training and life-long learning. He also calls for more proactive risk management and less crisis management, a stronger leadership base, and for the influence of accountants and commercial people in the pharmaceutical industry to be tempered. Senior decision makers in the pharmaceutical industry, educators as well as all medicine development scientists should find this discussion of interest.
