Opportunity to become a Patient Expert


The European Patient Academy (EUPATI) has opened applications for Cohort 4 for their Patient Expert Course.

The EUPATI state on their website, “When you have completed this course, we hope you will have the knowledge to make a meaningful contribution to the medicines research and development process to provide better medicines to patients. You will also be able to generate a broader dialogue around future patient involvement in the medicines research and development process across Europe.

The course will be a mixture of online and face-to-face education modules over a 15 month period, containing the following modules:

  1. Discovery of Medicines & Planning of Medicines Development
  2. Non-Clinical Testing and Pharmaceutical Development
  3. Exploratory and Confirmatory Clinical Development
  4. Clinical Trials
  5. Regulatory Affairs, Medicinal Product Safety, Pharmacovigilance and Pharmacoepidemiology
  6. Health Technology Assessment Principles and practices

We focus on education and training to increase the capacity and capability of patients to understand and contribute to medicines research and development and also improve the availability of objective, reliable, patient-friendly information for the public.”

We often hear buzzwords like “non-clinical testing” and “clinical trials”, so we think this is a great opportunity for members to learn more about them which will help give you a depth of insight and understanding to medicines development. If you are interested, make sure you apply by the end of this month as applications close on the 28th of October.
