Good pharmacometrics education is key to foster the further development of the field and allow implementation of model-based approaches with high quality in a way that directly and indirectly affects patients. This symposium aims to provide an overview of different aspects, which aid or hamper this education globally. Furthermore, capitalizing on the variety of approaches, useful strategies to bring out the highest quality in students are investigated and ways forward will be presented. Common factors between successful programs such as program size, industry sponsorship, student level, and future prospects will be identified and their relative impact assessed, ultimately increasing pharmacometric education and collaboration on a national and international level.
