The use of modeling and simulation in drug development has evolved from being a research nicety to a regulatory necessity. Today, modeling and simulation is used in most development programs to optimize key decisions related to safety, efficacy, dosing, special populations, and other labeling requirements.

As a pioneer in this field, we recognize that continuing education in both the theory and practice of modeling and simulation in drug development is pivotal to achieving the many benefits of modeling and simulation.

Certara University provides online courses, in-person classroom courses, and customized training on modeling and simulation to help you reach your professional development goals.  Our programs are designed for novice and advanced users of our industry standard software the Phoenix Platform for managing, analyzing and reporting pharmacokinetic (PK), pharmacodynamics (PD) and toxicokinetic (TK) data.

New! Live online courses

Take an online class with real-time interaction with instructors.

This new format means that the course is delivered virtually by an expert Phoenix instructor at pre-specified times.  Live online courses provide the benefit of the classroom setting, with real-time interaction with the instructor but without the travel.

Although attending during the class time is encouraged, recordings of the sessions are available to you during the length of the course.
