The course has been designed in response to a skills gap identified by pharmaceutical companies. The St George’s Clinical Pharmacology course will equip graduates with the knowledge, practical skills and knowhow to thrive in the work place.

The three-year course offers students the opportunity to learn about all aspects of Clinical Pharmacology whilst developing the skills to be competitive in the future jobs market. There is also an option of completing an additional year in industry with a professional employer.

Those studying the course will benefit from being taught by lecturers at the forefront of their respective fields as well as by visiting lecturers working at the frontiers of drug discovery. There are also six £9,000 cash awards available to help Clinical Pharmacology students with living and study costs.

Emma Baker, Professor of Clinical Pharmacology, explains “Clinical Pharmacology is the study of all aspects of drugs as they relate to humans. The course covers all of the processes that it takes to turn a drug from a molecule discovered in a laboratory to a medicine that can be used to make a real difference for patients.”
