  • This diploma course is independent of degree courses. Thus, you may start or continue your degree course during the period of the diploma course.
Course Structure
< Overall Schema for Pharmacometrics training >

However, we recognize that the learning separately and combining all of the contents described above may be time-consuming and hard to be achieved.

PIPET avoids redundancy and personalizes training for each individual. All the training contents are not mandatory and trainees are allowed to choose the contents according to their knowledge level. For example, a trainee whose scientific background is statistics may skip the trainings on statistics. By doing so, trainees may have more opportunities to obtain knowledge in the area of insufficient expertise.

PIPET provides you with ‘fit-for-purpose’ and simultaneous training courses which include;
  • On- & off-line lectures for essential contents for each training topic
  • Self-learning to fill up each individual’s weak area of knowledge & training waiver for areas where each individual has already been qualified
  • Face-to-face mentoring from faculties for know-how education
  • Practical training by being involved in actual pharmacometrics projects such as clinical researches and drug development consulting with ‘real-world’ topics
PIPET emphasizes that the trainees should ‘get involved’ in;
  • Nonclinical - clinical translation
  • Clinical trials of various phases
  • Clinical researches with various topics
PIPET expects the trainees may be awarded the diploma in 2-3 years.
Cost
Currently, there is no fee for this diploma course.
