The programme offers a unique and highly relevant learning experience with the flexibility to accommodate work-based learners, allowing them to enjoy the flexibility and accessibility of on-demand, online recorded lectures and live synchronous tutorials.Hibernia College delivers the programme in conjunction with faculty from Harvard University and the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (RCSI) in addition to leading international faculty from industry, medicine and academia worldwide.Feedback from the students, who are located in more than 30 countries worldwide, has been universally positive with 95% considering the course as highly relevant to their career development and to increasing their understanding of the global pharmaceutical industry. Hibernia College offers, through this Master of Science in Pharmaceutical Medicine, a richly interactive and highly successful online programme which provides an experience for learners that goes way beyond the limitations of traditional campus-based learning. It is therefore concluded that this Masters programme provides a unique technology enhanced learning experience which serves to benefit all participants with professional development that meets the requirements of the knowledge age.
