PAT - Training Program

A training program was established for the PATRIOT (PAT Review, Inspection and OPS (Office of Pharmaceutical Science) Policy Development Team) members who will manage the review/inspection process. This program was developed in coordination with several academic centers of excellence and includes didactic sessions, as well as advanced on-site practicums.
