Learning outcomes

I farmaci sono elementi essenziali nel mantenimento dello stato di salute delle popolazioni e il loro beneficio è indubbio, tuttavia nessun farmaco è esente da rischi ed è quindi necessario continuare costantemente a sorvegliare i farmaci immessi sul mercato per meglio definire il loro profilo di tollerabilità. Queste attività vanno sotto il nome di farmacovigilanza e ormai da decenni sono regolate da norme e leggi europee e nazionali. La conoscenza di tutti i complessi aspetti della farmacovigilanza, da quelli scientifici a quelli normativi rappresenta uno dei contenuti generali del Master, così come la conoscenza della Farmacoepidemiologia e delle analisi statistiche principali ed avanzate per valutazioni post- marketing.
Il Master offre due distinti curriculum, l'indirizzo "FV&DRF-FARMACOVIGILANZA E DISCIPLINE REGOLATORIE DEL FARMACO" e l'indirizzo "3F&RWD-FARMACOEPIDEMIOLOGIA, FARMACOSORVEGLIANZA, FARMACOECONOMIA E ANALISI DI REAL WORLD DATA", che presentano alcuni moduli e lezioni in comune, pur mantenendo gli obiettivi formativi specifici di seguito indicati. Per ciascun indirizzo sono previsti un numero minimo di 10 e un numero massimo di 40 iscritti.
OBIETTIVI FORMATIVI SPECIFICI DELL’INDIRIZZO «FV&DRF-FARMACOVIGILANZA E DISCIPLINE REGOLATORIE DEL FARMACO»
Un contenuto specifico di questo percorso è la conoscenza delle attività regolatorie che regolano il mondo del farmaco, dalle procedure precedenti alla sua immissione in commercio a quelle successive, procedure complesse che impegnano Industria Farmaceutica e Autorità Regolatorie ad una continua attività. Infine un ulteriore contenuto specifico è rappresentato dalla conoscenza del vasto mondo dell'informazione sul farmaco e della comunicazione del rischio da farmaci, attività che viene svolta prevalentemente in modalità e-learning. OBIETTIVI FORMATIVI SPECIFICI DELL’INDIRIZZO «3F&RWD-FARMACOEPIDEMIOLOGIA, FARMACOSORVEGLIANZA, FARMACOECONOMIA E ANALISI DI REAL WORLD DATA»
Acquisire un insieme di conoscenze teoriche, di strumenti metodologici e di esperienze pratiche in merito all’utilizzo di real world data derivati da banche dati sanitarie o raccolta prospettica ad hoc per la conduzione di studi di farmacovigilanza, farmacoepidemiologia e farmacoeconomia che possano essere di interesse per le aziende sanitarie locali/Regioni per la pianificazione della spesa sanitaria, valutazione dell’effetto di interventi di politiche sanitarie relative all’uso dei farmaci, per aziende private ai fini di market access o monitoraggio post-marketing di farmacovigilanza e per centri accademici a fini di ricerca di natura clinico-assistenziale.

First-cycle degrees: Bachelor’s degree programme

First-cycle degrees are aimed at enabling students to achieve a command of general scientific methods and content, and to acquire specific professional knowledge.
Admission requirements: secondary school diploma after completing 13 years of study in total and passing the relevant State examination, or equivalent foreign qualification; admission may be subject to further assessment.
Duration: three years.
Graduation: in order to obtain the degree, it is necessary to gain at least 180 CFU; doing an internship and preparing a dissertation/thesis may also be required. Upon completion of a Bachelor’s degree, graduates may continue their studies by enrolling in a Master’s degree or other second-cycle degree programmes and courses.
Academic title: upon completion of a Bachelor’s degree (Laurea), graduates are awarded the title of “Dottore”.

Second-cycle degrees: Master’s degree

Second-cycle degrees aim to provide students with an advanced training and knowledge to take on highly-skilled roles.
Admission requirements: applicants must hold a Bachelor’s degree, or a foreign equivalent qualification; curricular admission requirements for each course may vary depending on each University.
Duration: two years.
Graduation: in order to obtain the degree, it is necessary to gain at least 120 CFU, as well as preparing and presenting a dissertation/thesis.
Academic title: upon completion of a Master’s degree (Laurea Magistrale), graduates are awarded the title of “Dottore magistrale”. Single cycle/Combined Bachelor+Master’s degrees
Some courses (Medicine and Surgery, Veterinary Medicine, Dentistry and Dental Prosthetics, Pharmacy and Industrial Pharmacy, Architecture and Building Engineering-Architecture, Law, Primary Education) are offered as Single cycle/Combined Bachelor+Master’s degrees (Corsi di Laurea Magistrale a Ciclo Unico).

Other useful things

Crediti Formativi Universitari (CFU/ECTS credits): Italian university courses are based on the CFU system. 1 CFU is equal to 25 hours of study. The average annual academic workload for a full-time student is generally assumed to be 60 CFU. CFU and ECTS credits serve the same purpose and generally have the same value.
Degree class: Bachelor's and Master's degree programmes that have the same learning objectives and activities are grouped into “degree classes". The educational content of each programme is set autonomously by each university; however, universities are required to include certain educational activities (and the corresponding number of CFU credits) set at the national level. These requirements are established in relation to each degree class. Degrees in the same class have the same legal value.
Double/Joint degrees: the Italian universities may establish degree programmes in partnership with other Italian or foreign universities. Upon completion of these courses, graduates are awarded a joint or double/multiple degree, one from each Partner University.
