Online Courses in Pharmacovigilance: Promo video

Education / 16 October 2017

These new courses are a great step forward for international pharmacovigilance and knowledge sharing.


UMC now provides this online course to complement our international PV courses and to aid those who wish to learn from anywhere in the world. The course follows a micro-learning approach so the content is divided into modules which are further divided into lessons.

The first lessons are in signal detection and causality assessment. These lessons are especially useful for staff at National Centres for the WHO Programme for International Drug Monitoring but many others can benefit from them too.

You can learn more about the course HERE and sign up HERE.
