We are seeking an FPM Fellow (FFPM) to become our new Director of Training and Development. The successful applicant will lead our acclaimed DPM Training programme, and help integrate future new education products.

DPM Training offers educational support to pharmaceutical physicians studying for their Diploma in Pharmaceutical Medicine examination. The programme was gifted to FPM in 2020 by Professor Alan Boyd after many successful years’ delivery under BaxterBoyd and then Boyds Consultants.

In addition, FPM is planning a new educational offering of expert-led masterclasses and training courses, in a range of technical topics and professional development skills areas relevant to pharmaceutical physicians, to complement the topic coverage of DPM Training.

The programme will be a combination of courses developed by FPM as well as those designed and delivered by other training providers. In addition to leading DPM Training, the new director will also be asked to help scope and advise on the development of programmes in these additional topics and for specific learner groups.

The application deadline is 12:00 (UK time) on Monday 17 January 2022.
