Clinical Pharmacology BSc at St George's, University of London - UCAS

Course summary

This degree is the only undergraduate course dedicated to clinical pharmacology. We take a holistic view of the development of drugs: from understanding disease processes and identifying possible drug targets, to organising testing, rolling out clinical trials, negotiating complex regulations and licensing and finally, treating patients and potentially saving lives. The course blends clinical and fundamental sciences with an innovative integrated approach. Designed in collaboration with industry, our course prepares you for employment from the outset with a focus on developing core skills in leadership, organisation, communication, teamwork, academic integrity and more. You’ll relate your learning to real-life through case studies and practical activities, including weekly scenario-based learning sessions, clinical skills or laboratory sessions, projects and practical data analysis. Every student spends six weeks on industry-related work experience in Year 2. This is in large part thanks to our excellent professional links with the British Pharmacological Society (BPS), regulatory bodies, contract research organisations and major pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical companies.
