Pharmaceutical analysis is an important and integral part for the determination of quality including identity, purity and strength of the drugs. In addition, related studies and programs are needed to assure the performance of the drug products. It requires analysts to acquire a solid understanding of analytical chemistry and a thorough appreciation of pharmaceutical requirements to address these challenges. Each year the pharmaceutical industry worldwide recruits thousands of recent science graduates—especially chemistry, analytical chemistry, pharmacy, and pharmaceutical majors—into its ranks. However, because of their limited background in pharmaceutical analysis most of those new recruits find making the transition from academia to industry very difficult. This course is designed to assist both recent graduates, as well as experienced chemists or scientists with limited regulatory, compendial or pharmaceutical analysis background.
