Program Proposal(pdf)

PBC  Pharmacoepidemiology & Drug Safety   3/8/2014  Endorsed  4/29/2014 

Pharmacoepidemiology & Drug Safety  Program Description

The Post-Baccalaureate Certificate (P.B.C.) in Pharmacoepidemiology and Drug Safety offers a complement to The Johns Hopkins University’s commitment to educate a diverse group of research scientists and public health professionals. Pharmacoepidemiology is the study of the use and effects of medicines in large populations, which is increasingly important as prescription drugs play an increasing role in improving health and longevity. Graduates of the program will be able to describe the process of drug development, explain key requirements in biomedical product regulation and their rationale and apply scientific approaches to examine drug safety as well as the detection of adverse drug events. They will possess the knowledge to participate in the design of studies, both observational and experimental, to assess the effectiveness of drugs. Graduates will also be able to employ epidemiological techniques to study the patterns and determinants of drug utilization.
