Since 2009, Eureka has successfully developed and hosted the International Certificate Course in Translational Medicine (ICC_TM).

The programme is designed to build skills to foster innovative teams, critical thinking, and problem solving. The ultimate goal is to produce multidimensional, interdisciplinary professionals who are prepared for a wide range of TM careers focusing on improving human health.

If you attend ICC_TM, we will examine case studies tailored along translational medicine principles, and help you develop creative problem-solving strategies and novel skills to build new kinds of teams. You’ll also hone your ability to communicate effectively across broad audiences. The certificate program is tailored to individual needs and is based on learner-centered discussions and mentoring by internationally recognized leaders. Skills garnered from this course will help you to address the challenges facing drug development today and bridge the divide between concept and patient.
