Seminars focused on the development of professional skills. Each term focuses on a different topic, resulting in a repeating cycle that covers medical ethics, responsible conduct of research, written and oral technical communication, and translational issues. Includes guest lectures case studies, interactive small group discussions, and role-playing simulations.

Spring 2018 Topic: Drug Discovery and Development 

Through short lectures and interactive team exercises, students will explore the key phases of drug discovery and development starting from identifying unmet medical needs and therapeutic targets through to health authority approval. Additionally, students will investigate the different disciplines that participate in the discovery and development of drugs and devices.

 Session will be taught by scientists from the Novartis Institutes for BioMedical Research.
