Your Advantages

High quality Shared Standards
PharmaTrain is a global, not-for-profit organisation involved in setting standards in post-graduate training in Medicines Development. Academia and the pharmaceutical industry jointly established a syllabus comprehensively addressing topics of medicines development.

The PharmaTrain course concepts have been developed by university-based course providers and pharmaceutical industry experts to meet the industry’s needs and are outcomes-based to optimise the learning process for the student. In addition, PharmaTrain has developed a set of quality standards for ongoing quality assurance and created the accreditation infrastructure for PharmaTrain recognition as “PharmaTrain Centre” or “PharmaTrain Centre of Excellence” for course providers offering diploma or master programmes, CPD Modules and investigator training courses and fulfil the shared standards. Training Centres offering Diploma Courses, Master Programmes and CPD Modules and which fulfil the Shared Standards can apply for formal recognition by PharmaTrain. The recognition process follows a defined procedure.
