"The postgraduate course offers state-of-the-art knowledge in the field of radiopharmaceutical research and development, but also basic pharmacy knowledge that helped me as a chemist to improve my level of teaching pharmacy students. In addition the course gave me the opportunity to meet experts in the field and make new contacts."
Dr. D. Papagiannopoulou, Lecturer, Dep. of Pharm. Chemistry, School of Pharmacy, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Thessaloniki, Greece
The postgraduate certificate course (PCC) "Radiopharmaceutical
Chemistry/Radiopharmacy" addresses pharmacists and natural scientists
who work in the field of radiopharmacy or intend to do so.
The work of a radiopharmacist/radiochemist requires a
special qualification. On the one hand, the production of
radiopharmaceuticals requires the fulfillment of medicinal product
regulations concerning e.g. identity pureness, pharmacological
characerization and safety. On the other hand, the production is
subject to the applicable laws in radioprotection and legal regulations
This postgraduate course in radiopharmacy/radiopharmaceutical chemistry consists of three 2-week-modules taking place in Ljubljana, Zurich and Leipzig.
The PCC provides additional professional training for scientists, especially chemists and pharmacists involved in the small-batch manufacture or quality control of radioactive drugs as well as in the research and development of such products, or for those wishing to work in this field in future.
The certificate is issued to postgraduate students under the following conditions: The applicant
There is a written exam after each module.
Generally this is held at the beginning of the next module. After module III there is an exam in the following spring held in different centers. We try to offer an examination center for every country.
For overseas participants we try to offer the possibility to sit the exam in a place (usually a university) within reasonable travelling distance. Should you like to sit the exam in another place than the above, please contact the head office in Zurich after your course application.
