PharmaTrain Federation is a not for profit organisation that started its activities as an IMI (Innovative Medicines Initiative) European Project. Its mission is to drive implementation of globally recognized high-level standards for postgraduate education and training in Medicines Development. To that aim, the Federation is assessing Continuous Professional Development (CPD) Courses and Course Providers around the world that deserve recognition as PharmaTrain Course, PharmaTrain Centre or PharmaTrain Centre of Excellence and jointly form the PharmaTrain Course Providers Network.
Mastering Medicines Development
To improve post-graduate competence development in Pharmaceutical Medicine/Medicines Development, PharmaTrain developed an Evaluation and Recognition Process for all education and training centres and courses covering all or at least one topic of the PharmaTrain Syllabus. Successful assessment grants the PharmaTrain Recognition on three (3) different levels.
For a CPD Course on any topics of the PharmaTrain Syllabus.
For Master/Diploma Course, or large group of CPD Courses on PharmaTrain Syllabus topics.
For a Master/Diploma Course in Pharmaceutical Medicines/Medicines Development.

Concept & Objectives
Currently, academically-qualified (in medicine or life sciences) people working in medicines development are trained on the job, undertake continuing professional development (CPD), and participate in university training courses to achieve a secondary diploma and/or master degree. Both tracks will lead to an individual acquiring a certain array of competencies across multiple domains. So far, there is no qualification/degree/award available in most countries which certifies this described background or achievement, and the PharmaTrain SMD Certification concept & programme aims to fill this gap.
