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
and learn pharmacology - 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 drugsThe skills you will develop include setting up and running clinical trials, conducting experiments in a pharmacology laboratory and communicating your findings to different audiences in person and in writing. You will learn through interactive lectures, small group teaching, regular clinical and laboratory sessions and individual research projects. These will help you develop the knowledge and skills you need to enter a career in the life sciences, working in industry, academia or healthcare, particularly in the development of new medicines.The course has been developed in collaboration with a wide range of organisations including the pharmaceutical industry, contract research organisations, universities and healthcare. This helps us to ensure that you will develop the skills needed to work in the industry, and will graduate equipped to start your career in scientific research or healthcare.

Between years 2 and 3 of the course, you can also opt to do a professional training year working with an employer to build your skills. **Course highlights**- 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 - Meets the entry requirements for a profession that is in high demand**About St George’s, University of London**As the UK’s specialist health university, we’ve been improving health for over 250 years.
