Almost 2,400 pharmacists in Spain have chosen medical technology-related courses since the launch of a national professional development programme in 1997. Despite the programme's focus on pharmacological topics, such as formulation theory and side effects, 1,621 have undergone training in clinical testing and 741 have been trained on medical devices. The total equates to almost one in 10 of the 27,000 professionals who have entered the programme, according to a survey conducted by the national council of official colleges of chemists.
