Core Competencies in Pharmaceutical Medicine and Medicines Development.

APPLIED KNOWLEDGE, SKILLS AND BEHAVIOURS.

The identification and development of new medicines has become a complex and high-risk international enterprise and this has encouraged pharmaceutical medicine and medicines development sciences to embrace the concept of competence and of competency-based education and training as the means for addressing the very varied and specialised needs of those engaged in this challenging endeavour.

The 57 core competencies in pharmaceutical medicine and medicines development sciences (PM/MDS) across seven domains of this scientific  medical discipline are now available for professional use. They represent the full array of skills and activities to fill a competency profile for a professional practising as a generalist across the full breadth of the discipline.

The applied knowledge, skills and attitudes / behaviours of each of the 57 core competencies have been built up over many years of practice in the disciplines, through specialist training programme curricula, and through Delphi exercises to focus on the knowledge and skills of practitioners to meet the learning outcomes of the relevant cognitive competencies, which are addressed in educational programmes accredited by IFAPP and PharmaTrain.

These core competencies have been developed and adapted for international context and application by the IFAPP-PharmaTrain Federation Collaboration Working Group. A process for internal and external validation has been initiated, which is ongoing and should not preclude the use of the core competencies as necessary.

IFAPP Education Working Group Identifies Core Competencies

In fulfillment of one of its key objectives, IFAPP's Education Working Group has identiied 7 domains and 60 core competencies to orient the discipline and the academic programs for the development of future competent professionals and to advance the profession.

The effective implementation of training programs using Core Competencies for pharmaceutical physicians and drug development scientists anywhere in the world may transform the drug development process to an efficient and integrated process for better and safer medicines.
