The EACPT has supported a European study of clinical pharmacology and therapeutics education which has now just been published in the journal Clinical Pharmacology & Therapeutics.
Effective teaching in pharmacology and clinical pharmacology and therapeutics (CPT) is necessary to make medical students competent prescribers. However, the current structure, delivery and assessment of CPT education in the European Union (EU) is unknown.
In this study, the authors evaluated the current structure, delivery and assessment of clinical pharmacology and therapeutics education in the European Union. The authors conclude from a cross-sectional survey among 185 medical schools in 27 countries that pharmacology and therapeutics education in the EU needs harmonisation and modernisation.
- 22 sessions with Keynote Lectures on current issues for research, education and clinical practice on safe and effective use of medicines
- almost 500 oral and poster presentations from the European Region and around the world
- presentation of EACPT Lifetime Achievement (Professor Pertti J.Neuvonen, Finland) and Scientific Awards
- opportunity to network with global experts and trainees in the fields of research, clinical practice, the biotechnology sector, regulation and health policy
- update on the activities of the EACPT Working Groups for Research, Education, Regulation and Young Pharmacologists.
Anyone from anywhere in the world with a professional interest in clinical pharmacology and/or therapeutics can now join the EACPT as an Individual Associate member.
There are reduced joining fees for Individual Associate members who are already members of a national or international organisation relevant to clinical pharmacology and therapeutics.
