Core Competencies for Pharmaceutical Physicians and Drug Development Scientists

Under the leadership of Dr. Honorio Silva, President Inter American Foundation of Clinical Research, a global IFAPP (International Federation of Associations of Pharmaceutical Physicians) Working Group (WG) on Competencies in Pharmaceutical Medicine as comprised of 16 pharmaceutical physicians from all continents defined a set of core competencies for pharmaceutical physicians and drug development scientists.

Summarized in a Statement of Competence, those core competencies were benchmarked and aligned with the Learning Outcomes (LO) of the PharmaTrain Base Course.

Johanna Schenk, MD, FFPM, Managing Director & COO, PPH plus, was a WG team member who contributed to the publication in ‘Frontiers in Pharmaceutical Medicine and Outcomes Research’.
