This module will give you a broad understanding of pharmaceutical manufacturing technologies, the rules that govern manufacturing and the guidelines on how these rules are applied along with the risk management tools to be used when making decisions that could impact the safety of the medicines being manufactured.
This program explains the engineering documentation used to specify and design equipment or systems in a manufacturing facility – and how to develop an IQ OQ PQ validation test protocols to ensure that it operates as intended and meets the regulatory requirements.
This module will provide a foundation in the general chemistry necessary to understand the fundamental concepts involved in the chemistry of API (Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients) required for the manufacture of medicinal products.
Please note: This module is run as a group module (3 times a year) and you will be required to keep pace with the class during the running of this module. This is the only module that you won’t be able to control the pace of your study on.
