The majority of university medical centers comprise an institute of phar-macology and a hospital pharmacy. In order to interlink the activities of both institutions at the university hospital of Schleswig-Holstein, campus Liibeck, an interdisciplinary pharmacotherapeutic case conference was initiated in June 2012. The pharmacotherapeutic case conference was evaluated by question-naire. Additionally, questionnaires were sent to German university medi-cal centers in order to survey which institutions maintain a pharmaco-therapeutic case conference and collect their experiences. 19 out of 21 questionnaires (90%) of the internal evaluation were returned. Past case presentations were rated good for problem-oriented learning {median 2, interquartile 2-3 on a scale of 1-5) and acquired knowledge was well applicable in daily work (median 2, interquartile 2-3). Respon-dents appraised the case conference as preparation for possible future scope of duties. For the survey of university medical centers, 50% of ques-tionnaires were returned. Only one hospital reported a comparable con-ference. A monthly pharmacotherapeutic case conference is suitable for problem- oriented interdisciplinary exchange. In order to strengthen the inter-disciplinary character of the case conference, more physicians who are involved in patient care will be integrated.
