Clinical pharmacology is the science of designing and testing medicines for use in humans. Clinical pharmacologists work at the meeting point between the laboratory and clinic, developing discoveries into medicines. They also identify clinical problems that need investigation in research settings. Our Clinical Pharmacology BSc is designed to provide you with a broad understanding of how drugs are developed, from the discovery of molecules to the treatment of patients. It is a modular, three-year degree course. You will study six main topics:
- Fundamentals of science: the human biology needed to understand
- Pharmacokinetics: how the body handles drugs
- Pharmacodynamics: how drugs exert their effects on the body
- Drug development and clinical trials: how drugs are discovered and developed as medicines
- Drugs in healthcare: how information from clinical trials and drug development is used to guide the use of medicines for patients in clinical practice
- Data and statistics: how to collect, analyse and interpret research data relating to drugs
- The first course of its kind that provides a broad understanding of how drugs are developed
- Unique teaching team with extensive experience in clinical pharmacology from both science and healthcare backgrounds
- Excellent facilities on a campus shared between the university and one of the UK’s largest teaching hospitals
- Developed in collaboration with industry and healthcare organisations to make sure you develop the necessary skills for a career in the field
