Pharmaceutical Industrial Advanced Training (PIAT)


Course Description

Developed in partnership with the pharmaceutical industry, the four programmes offered by Manchester Pharmacy School are postgraduate-level training programmes designed for scientists and managers working in the pharmaceutical industry and NHS in the fields of Product Development, Manufacturing and Quality Assurance.

Our Clinical Trials programme is ideal for those wishing to specialise in this key area and is of relevance to those working in the NHS setting as well as the Industrial setting.

We work with PharMIG on the content and curriculum of our programme for Pharmaceutical Microbiology, ensuring that this programme is recognised as leading within the field.

Our programme for Pharmaceutical Business Development and Licensing is delivered in partnership with the Pharmaceutical Licensing Group, allowing you the opportunity to learn from leaders in networking and the legal field.

And finally our suite of programmes for those working in Industrial Pharmacy encapsulates the role from formulation, through QA and QC to regulatory affairs and lean processes.

Many of our modules have been developed to support those seeking to build their QP portfolio and our team includes QPs who are willing to support your development through this pathway.

We offer a three day Summer School each year to allow you to meet fellow students and your tutors, whilst attending workshop to support your learning and development in the modules.

And for our Business Development and Licensing programme we offer a two day Winter School held in London which covers the modules within this key programme for BD executives.

The programme is administered by the Manchester Pharmacy School, which obtained the highest ratings available in recent teaching and research assessments.
