Pharma Consultant Programme

Conceptual knowledge that is necessary for success in the pharma industry


The Pharma Consultant Programme is open to anyone who wants a basic education in pharmaceuticals and the pharma industry and who wants to strengthen their capabilities when working with or advising on drugs, e.g. as a professional in sales and marketing, market access or public affairs.

The programme is developed with insights from thorough market research and in collaboration with leading managers from the pharmaceutical industry to ensure that the course content is up to date and easily applicable to your everyday work life.

Programme structure

The programme consists of compulsory courses that provide conceptual knowledge on anatomy, physiology and pharmacology and a range of elective courses that enable you to design a programme that fits your professional interests.

The training is a combination of online training and classroom training to offer you the best learning environment for each topic, therefore the compulsory courses Anatomy & Physiology and Pathology are conducted as online training.

Please note that the compulsory course Pharmacology consists of three modules (Module I, Module II and Module III) each module is a two-day course, and you must register for each pharmacology module separately.

To obtain the diploma you must attend four compulsory courses (including Pharmacology I, II and III) and two elective courses. You can take the courses in random order, however it is required that you take the course Understanding Pharma before any elective courses.


There are no prerequisites or academic background requirements for you to be accepted on to this programme.
