INSTN is Qualiopi certified
They come from Burkina Faso, Ivory Coast, the Democratic Republic of Congo, and Mauritius. They are the first students to graduate from the Masters Degree in Radiopharmacy, as a result of the partnership between Morocco’s CNESTEN - National Center for Energy, Sciences and Nuclear Techniques - and INSTN, under the IAEA’s - International Agency for Atomic Energy - stewardship.
After two years of training at the Faculty of Medicine and Pharmacy of Rabat (FMP-Rabat) of the Mohammed V University in Rabat, these students, who are trained in the techniques for the handling of radiopharmaceuticals for diagnosis and therapy, will be able to participate in the development of nuclear medicine in their respective countries.
INSTN trains French radiopharmacists in the framework of the Radiopharmacy Diploma (French DESC). We were also asked, as subject matter expert and IAEA Collaborating Centre, to help develop the educational model for this new Masters degree. This training is part of a plan to strengthen the national capacities of African countries in radiopharmacy, in order to better support the development of nuclear medicine and meet the growing needs for diagnosis and therapy in Africa.
