Diploma in Pharmacovigilance

An international training programme


We have seen an increase in demand in the pharmaceutical and biotech industries for qualified pharmacovigilance professionals. Our Diploma in Pharmacovigilance is designed to meet this demand, offering you a specialised understanding of pharmacovigilance issues based on a practical industry approach. The eight courses cover key stages of a drug’s lifecycle and aim to satisfy the educational needs of practicing pharmacovigilance professionals.

Design your own diploma

You can design your own diploma by attending individual courses in whichever order you like. See all pharmacovigilance courses here .

To earn the Diploma in Pharmacovigilance, you must attend and pass the exams of five courses within a five-year period, one of which can be from the Diploma in Regulatory Affairs courses.

Our courses mix learning activities such as classroom teaching, self-study, interactive discussions, case studies, and workshops. We conclude each course with an examination about 4-6 weeks after the end of the course.

Our courses have been developed in collaboration with a team of internationally renowned pharmacovigilance experts from the pharmaceutical and biotech industries, the Danish Medicines Agency, and researchers from the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University of Copenhagen. Through their representation in the Advisory Board and as frequent course leaders and lecturers at the individual courses, all these experts are involved in the continuous development of our courses.
