Masterclasses

Our Masterclass courses are designed to meet the educational and vocational needs of experienced regulatory professionals in the pharmaceutical and allied industries.

Each pharmaceutical Masterclass lasts 2.5 days and is built around lectures, case studies and discussion groups. Lecturers are drawn from the industry, regulatory authorities and academia.

Emphasis in most of the courses is given to discussion of European regulatory requirements and to practical problems involved in meeting them. Where appropriate, comparisons are made with the regulatory requirements of other major markets.

A total of 21 continuing professional development Masterclasses are on offer providing the opportunity for experienced regulatory professionals to gain valuable in-depth knowledge and updates. Around five pharmaceutical Masterclasses are held each year.
