Eu2P: European programme in Pharmacovigilance and Pharmacoepidemiology
The Eu2P Master is organized as a sandwich course in order to develop skills in a professional environment. This sandwich course is composed for half of it, of web-based theoretical learning and for its second half, of a research project. Following successful completion, you will be awarded a joint Master of Science degree in Pharmacovigilance and Pharmacoepidemiology run by the Eu2P academic, private and regulatory partners.



One major characteristic of the Eu2P programme is to provide a flexible and modular training in pharmacovigilance and pharmacoepidemiology to meet the on-the-job training needs.

All Eu2P trainings, the Master, Certificates and PhD are provided on the Eu2P e-learning platform. Live lectures and discussions are provided through web-based room conference.
Course examinations are also performed online through a web-based room where each student is supervised.

The fresher's week is a face-to-face session that happens at the beginning of each Master year to have the opportunity to meet all Eu2P trainees and main lecturers. Especially, the fresher's week allows introducing the trainees with the main lines of the programme and with the use of the e-learning platform. Each domain lecturers' team provides face-to-face lectures for half a day. The European location chosen for the fresher's week may be different each year.

Each enrolled Master trainee should participate to the fresher's week. If it is not possible, the trainee must follow all the fresher's week training contents on the e-learning platform.
