This link will direct you to the Virtual Course in Radiopharmacy.

This Virtual  Course in Radiopharmacy is part of the VirRAD project. The VirRAD project was established in 2002 with funding from the FP7 IST 2001 work programme on Education and Training which was directed to support improvements in the process of learning through the use of ICT, focusing in particular on the trend towards greater individual control and responsibility for training. VirRAD aimed to create a readily accessible virtual-environment where the Radiopharmacist community could meet to learn, exchange views, and discuss best practice and the platform evolved into three main components – a virtual community, a 3-D virtual Radiopharmacy laboratory and the associated Courseware.

The VirRAD courseware aims to provide you with on-line radiopharmacy learning materials that may be accessed at any time, anywhere in the world. This course has been designed so that it may be used for self-directed learning, so you don't need the guidance of a tutor. This course is divided into three modules, Radiopharmaceutical Preparation, Radionuclide Generators and Quality Control. Each module can be viewed as an individual unit; however, they are highly interconnected and together provide a coherent picture of basic radiopharmacy principles.
