Abstract

We present a concept of pharmacoepidemiology as a branch of clinical epidemiology having particular relevance to public health in developing countries. Planning to incorporate pharmacoepidemiology into the clinical epidemiology curriculum of the International Clinical Epidemiology Network (INCLEN) is discussed and an outline of training programs in pharmacoepidemiology at INCLEN universities is given.
