Education & Training

Strengthening pharmacovigilance through capacity building.

Your knowledge centre for medicine safety  

Together with our partners, we offer a range of programmes and resources that support the safer use of medicines. Our hands-on and web-based courses provide national centres, industry, regulatory bodies and universities with the technical know-how and skills to strengthen their pharmacovigilance systems and practices, as well as increase their understanding of communications and crisis management.

Pharmacovigilance courses

UMC runs a two-week pharmacovigilance training course in Uppsala, Sweden, each year. We also organise courses in Asia and Latin America together with the International Society of Pharmacovigilance, and provide ad-hoc courses on request.
