Building and enhancing Regulatory Capacity in Africa
Learning in a good mood”... These are my words if someone asks me to describe RCORE learning. Thank you to all the FDA team for sharing transparently your experience and allowing other African countries to improve our skills. Learning from the BEST!

Here are some interesting comment the participants had to say about the RCORE fellowship training.
Thank you for your enriching and construction at the beginning of my professional career on trials. This training allowed me to consolidate my knowledge in clinical trials. This training will also be useful for setting up on clinical trials department. ARP Senegal thanks you.
-Prof. Yoro Tine
Thank you for this beautiful moment spent together for this opportunity which goes beyond the professional but also the love for a continent. You are a model to the new Africa.

RCORE is a great career credential. The range of teaching methodologies reflects the complexity of clinical trials. The use of a combination of intensive classroom training and the hands-on-skill building was very effective.

I want to thank the FDA for organizing such valuable capacity-building training as this will significantly add value to my professional career. I hope and pray that the RCORE training will continue to grow from strength to strength to support the region in human resource development.

Being in this beautiful land of Ghana has been a great experience. The RCORE program has enlightened me in the area of clinical trial inspection and Technical Advisory Committee meetings. I have appreciated the interactions, enjoyed the multinational diversity and the love extended to me. I leave as a better regulator, looking forward to implementing the lessons learnt to improve clinical trial regulation in Kenya. I highly appreciate my agency (Pharmacy and Poisons Board, Kenya) for the nomination to attend this session. I recommend this RCORE to all regulators.

To Ghana FDA, it is a great opportunity for having participated in the 5th RCORE. It is an honour to witness the implementation and collaboration between Rwanda FDA and Ghana FDA for working towards harmonization of regulatory functions and mutual support in every way to ensure the safety of people.
