This 2-year, part-time course is a joint venture between the Division of Pharmacology, Department of Medicine at the Stellenbosch University Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences and the Tiervlei Trial Centre. It aims to equip students with a thorough understanding and knowledge of new drug development and the principles of clinical pharmacology; pharmaceutical development and safety pharmacology; the planning and execution of clinical trials; clinical epidemiology, ethics, statistics and data management, as well as pharmacovigilance, pharmaceutical marketing and economics of health care.
The modular format and course structure (i.e. 3 full days every quarter) were specifically adopted to accommodate part-time students and those from out of town. The course is open to students preparing for the Dip Pharm Med examination of the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Medicine (UK). Each module is also offered as a stand-alone short course. It has received Affiliate status by the EU IMI initiative PharmaTrain (http://www.pharmatrain.eu/).
