Pharmacometrics Modeling

Pharmacometrics Modeling Digital Badge.

Our Pharmacometrics Modeling micro-credential is a three-course series covering what pharmacometrics entails. Each of these courses will provide you with an in-depth overview of Pharmacometrics encompassing methodology and application of models for disease and pharmacological measurement. Each course consists of lectures and hands-on practical with application-based software to guide you through pharma data and modeling problems. Finally, to obtain the micro-credential you will complete a cumulative modeling question related to current applications in Pharmacometrics.

This is a micro-credential program. Earn the Pharmacometrics Modeling digital badge upon successful completion of this program. Learn more about micro-credentials.

Eligibility Requirements

Who is eligible?

Intended for both UB students and non-degree students


Required Courses

Courses are asynchronous remote, in which learning materials are provided online, and students can view these materials and complete tasks at their own pace. However, there are also required due dates.

  • PHC 506: Biometry in Pharmaceutical Sciences (spring, 3 credits): This course provides a broad overview of statistical approaches commonly used in the area of pharmaceutical research. In addition to learning the theoretical aspects of these approaches, students will gain hands-on experience applying these approaches to experimental data using a statistical software package used be researches in academia, government, and the pharmaceutical industry.
  • PHC 607B: Intermediate Pharmacokinetics (fall, 3 credits): This course covers the theoretical development of the major methods, models, and equations used in pharmacokinetics with their physicochemical and physiological assumptions and limitations. It employs current graphical and computer methods of applying pharmacokinetics to analysis of experimental and clinical data; as well as evaluating literature and approaches to design of studies and recovery of essential drug parameters.
  • PHC 610: Population PKPD Modeling (spring, 2 credits): Note you must complete PHC 607 before taking PHC 610. This course introduces population pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic modeling methods, including the use of state-of-the-art software and tools (in particular, NONMEM) to analyze PK and PD data. 

Additional required activities/assignments:

  • To obtain the digital badge you will complete a cumulative Pharmacogenomics question related to current issues in pharmacogenomics.
