Course detail

- Description -

Pharmaceutical Medicine is the medical scientific discipline concerned with the discovery, development, evaluation, registration, monitoring and medical aspects of the marketing of medicines for the benefit of patients and the health of the community.

In this rapidly expanding field of medicine there is a need for high quality education programmes that are compliant with the PharmaTrain initiative of the European Commission, but also with the Bologna process. The programmes at King’s will be the first in the UK that meet both of these requirements. This, plus the opportunity to study at a world class university makes King’s the ideal place at which to study for one of these MSc subjects.

Clinical Pharmacology is the study of how drugs influence human physiology and the way the body handles drugs. It is a vital part of the early clinical development of new medicines. It requires an understanding of preclinical science, ethical and legal requirements for clinical research programmes and how to design and interpret individual clinical trials. A well designed clinical pharmacology programme informs the final regulatory of a new medicine. Generating skilled clinical pharmacologists is therefore vital to ensure that new medicines are efficiently developed.

- Format and assessment -

Each taught module is delivered as a distinct intensive four or five day taught course, accompanied by distance learning and written assessments.

Core modules:

- ADME, Pharmacokinetics & Pharmacodynamics
- Advanced Clinical Pharmacology
- Clinical Drug Development
- Clinical Pharmacology Research Project
- Drug Development Pharmacology
- Exploratory Drug Development
- Practical Clinical Pharmacology

3 assignments plus 1 online multiple choice test for each module.

- Course purpose -

This programme is for those working in or seeking to work in the field of clinical drug development. It covers all aspects of the clinical development process through from the earliest studies to post marketing activities. It will enhance knowledge and skills in all aspects of clinical research, drug regulation and drug safety.

Career prospects

It is expected that students who complete this programme will be able to work in the clinical research arena at a higher level and this will open up job opportunities that might have previously been beyond their reach and enhance their value to their employers.
