AGAH e.V. is a non-for-profit medical-scientific society founded in 1991 and currently has about 350 members (http://www.agah.eu/). AGAH has been accredited as scientific society with the German Association of medical-scientific societies (Arbeitsgemeinschaft der wissenschaftlichen-medizinischen Fachgesellschaften in Deutschland; http://www.awmf.org/en/scientific-societies/member-societies.html ). On a European level, AGAH is full member of the European Federation for Exploratory Medicines Development (http://www.eufemed.eu ). AGAH performs an Annual Meeting and several workshops per year and is continuously engaged in professional training activities in early medicines development (see http://www.agah.eu/infothek/) .
AGAH is striving for information, education and training of staff working in early drug development in practical terms, thus Phase I units in pharma companies, CROs and academia. It is a lively community with annual conferences, a long-standing clinical trial management course for Phase I study nurses and monitors. With the attached training course they train the more senior staff in early drug development. The long-term goal is to at some later stage integrate this module here as the Introductory module to a Diploma course in Human Pharmacology with in total 5 more modules that will be contributed by the sister associations in France, Belgium and UK.
