About PharmaSchool

PharmaSchool is one of the most well-respected clinical research training organizations in the world. Established in 2005 by industry experts our philosophy is to provide excellent training which meets customers' needs.

History of PharmaSchool

In 2005 Adrian Parrott and Jo Burmester were each commissioned to write a book aimed at clinical researchers. At an editorial meeting they got talking and recognized a shared passion for providing clinical research training which engages the audience, provides practical real world application and, most importantly of all, equips participants to perform their duties to the very best of their abilities. From this humble beginning PharmaSchool was formed and has grown to become a first port of call for clinical research training for a large and growing number of organizations. Adrian and Jo still play key roles in the management of the company and so we remain true to those founding ideals.
