INTRODUCTION TO THE EVENT

Core competencies in Clinical Pharmacology (CP) education are well established but poorly harmonized within European National training programmes. At the same time, opportunities for career development in CP differ to some extent in different countries in Europe. Important concerns regarding pregraduate and postgraduate training need to be raised by CP trainees and addressed in a collaborative approach. Answering to this emerging call for action, the EACPT decided to organize a pre-Congress Meeting to stimulate the international exchange of experiences and collaboration of CP trainees and senior members of the Association. The meeting was organized in June 26-27th, 2015 in Madrid. CP trainees were the main actors of this meeting, whereby making their voices audible and addressing their main concerns on CP education and career development to Senior Leader of the EACPT.

The meeting was successfully conducted, with the participation of more than 90 young and senior professionals from all over the world. The main conclusion of the meeting was the creation of the Young Clinical Pharmacologists Working Group, with three main areas of action: education, mobility programmes and networking. The working group and its main objectives were ratified by the Network Committee Meeting during the EACPT Congress.

Four years have gone by now, and it is time to make an objective appraisal of the changing needs of CP trainees and researchers, and of the objectives to be pursued by the working group in the future. We do need to build a constructive and inspiring networking space for young professionals in our Society. Furthermore, we need to foster multilateral collaboration as the uttermost expression of Science across borders. For this aim, we need your voice at the meeting, and we need your active participation in our common working group. Surely, the pre-meeting event will be worthwhile for the entire community of CP trainees and researchers. Do not miss this opportunity and register! In addition, you can also register into the working group (as an active member for future initiatives) by selecting the option while making the registration to the event.
