Company history

Health Science Academy was built on the product offering and reputation of Technipharm, a pharmacist training provider established in 1990. Technipharm was at the forefront of providing specialised training required by pharmacists in the pharmaceutical industry, and a range of courses were developed and presented in this field. Health Science Academy was later bought by Innovex SA, a subsidiary of Quintiles Inc., and Innovex SA continued to build on the company’s core business.

In 2005, Health Science Academy was bought by the Foundation for Professional Development (FPD), a private institution of higher education, established at the end of 1997 with the purpose of providing a comprehensive range of education products and research, tailor-made to the needs of the healthcare sector.
