The Radiopharmaceutical Sciences Committee of the European Association of Nuclear Medicine (EANM) has established a European post-graduate specialisation certificate in Radiopharmacy.
This certificate is available to anyone who completes a defined programme of education and has two years of practical experience in the field. The programme is coordinated by the ESMIT Representative of the Radiopharmaceutical Sciences Committee.
The certificate is valid for 5 years.
The tool for Radiopharmacy Recertification is now located on the ESMIT eLearning platform.
The postgraduate certificate course in Radiopharmaceutical Chemistry/Radiopharmacy is a complete training programme, especially for chemists and pharmacists involved in the small-batch manufacture or quality control of radioactive drugs as well as in the research and development of such products.
The course is coordinated by the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Zurich/Switzerland (ETHZ).
The course language is English.

The module fee covers the lectures and practicals, course documents (paper and electronic version), laboratory materials, transport to external course locations (e.g. plant visits), as well as refreshments, lunch and a “welcome dinner”. For the whole CAS programme, an additional tuition fee is charged by ETH.
A certificate may be awarded to participants who – in the view of the EANM Radiopharmacy Board – are suitably qualified in that they have
If there is uncertainty if the 2-year job experience is adequate, the candidate should contact the committee chairwoman. A board member will be assigned, who will find a solution together with the candidate.
To get access to the (Re)certification tool on the ESMIT eLearning platform, please follow the “Application Process” steps above.

Persons who meet the requirements and who wish to apply for the certificate are asked to upload the following documents to the (Re)certification tool:
In order to keep the certificate valid, the certificate holder needs to have continuous training and education. The holder needs to collect 20 credits during a five-year period starting on January 1 in the year immediately following the initial certification.
Credits can be earned by relevant GMP and Radiopharmacy training and courses, e.g. ESMIT L3 courses (4 credits/day), international meetings and congresses, e.g. ISRS, SNM, EANM, ESRR (2 credits/day) and national meetings and congresses (1point/day). E.g. a two-and-a-half-day national meeting will yield 2.5 credits; the EANM congress will yield 7 credits.
