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 Kings 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 Kings 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.
