A fundamental aspect of GRiP's strategy to address the lack of development and safe use of medicines in children is to adequately educate current and future generations of health professionals to be able to conduct robust paediatric clinical trials aimed to ensure Marketing Authorization with specific Paediatric therapeutic Indications.


That is why GRiP has developed a Master of Science (MSc) Programme in “Paediatric Medicines Development and Evaluation”, targeting health professionals with work experience in the field.


Detailed information on the MSc Programme can be found in the presentation booklet.


The MSc Programme on Paediatric Medicines Development and Evaluation is a two-year programme with 60 ECTS, awarded by the University of Rome Tor Vergata.


The Programme is based on ten modules to be taken in a sequenced manner.


Almost all theoretical education is offered online through the GRiP Virtual Learning Environment.  Students are required to attend face-to-face lessons during the Fresher’s and Re-Fresher’s meetings and during their work placement and/or training stages.


Teaching for the first class of students begins on 19th November 2014 with a face-to-face meeting in Rome. Please click on the link below for a preliminary agenda of the Fresher's meeting in Rome:

The curriculum of the MSc has two important aims:


1. To educate the next generation of researchers, paediatricians, physicians and health professionals in paediatric pharmacology and trial design in order to conduct robust clinical drug trials in the paediatric ages.


2. To stimulate continuing professional development of practicing physician and pharma- cists to acquire additional competences in all the specific aspects of paediatric pharma- cology, drug evaluation, trial design and conduct, as well as the regulatory requirements for the in-label use of medicines.
