All the regulatory agencies in the world have been trying to work for the benefit to the patients by establishing new regulations in response to the needs of their citizens. In this session, we invite speakers who once worked as a physician in the medical institutions, where they observed what regulatory agencies do, and then later became a leader of agencies, or a leader of pharmaceutical industry. Speakers will be asked to discuss “Rational Medicine” from the patients’ view point. Rational Medicine is something that patients want, and not only healthcare providers but also people working in the industry and regulatory agencies would want to deliver it to the patients. What did they think about when they were healthcare providers? Did it change when they became a leader of agency or industry? Let us relook at what Rational Medicine really mean through these discussions.
