Vrije Universiteit Brussel incorporated the Pharmacy Game, GIMMICS®, back in 2008 into the pharmacy curricula. The game is integrated in their last year Master of Science in Pharmaceutical Care or Drug Development. It is blended within an overall course together with professional practice, pharmaceutical legislation and deontology.

The game is played once a year (in January) for a duration of 20 days. Each game includes about 60 students, divided to manage 5 pharmacies. The main learning goals are to emphasize the different workflows and overcome the differences that may arise between the students due to the different professional practice. Furthermore, it provides a safe learning environment to upgrade their pharmaceutical and communicating skills.
