Thomson Scientific Launches Online Learning Resource
Thomson Scientific (http://www.scientific.thomson.com) announced the launch of a Web-based resource for regulatory intelligence training. Called Regulatory Online Learning, it integrates with IDRAC, which provides reference information for the drug development regulatory environment. IDRAC was acquired by Thomson in 2004.
The Regulatory Online Learning modules now available include the following:
- Introduction to European Union institutions and regulatory authority (EMEA)
- Introduction to U.S. institutions and regulatory authority (FDA)
- Introduction to Japanese institutions and regulatory authorities
- How to Register Medicinal Products through the Centralized Procedure
Twelve more Regulatory Online Learning modules are poised for launch later this year; a total of 16 training modules will be available for the first year of introduction. Further modules will be added subsequently. These modules will cater to three levels of expertise: Introductory, Practical (to include case studies), and Strategic. Online learning modules are developed by IDRAC experts, assisted by an international network of consultants and partners. Content of all modules will be continually updated and complemented by an e-Testing capability that will enable online knowledge testing after each module has been completed.Source: Thomson Scientific
