Course Description

Clinical pharmacology is a medical scientific discipline concerned with the study of therapeutic or diagnostic substances to help establish the theoretical and practical basis for their rational clinical application. A full understanding of pharmacodynamic and pharmacokinetic behaviour optimises evaluation in therapeutic clinical trials and postregistration use in the treatment andor diagnosis of disease. The awards qualify an individual as having received postgraduate training suitable for senior scientific and clinical posts within clinical pharmacology. The programme is designed to: ? Give a greater understanding of clinical pharmacology ? Provide evidence of specialisation, which is increasingly required under EU legislation ? Demonstrate proficiency across the whole field of clinical pharmacology through a system of continuous assessment The programme enables you to gain a wider perspective and the critical evaluation skills relating to medicine design and conduct of clinical trials (nationally and internationally). The part-time and modular nature of the programme is well suited to busy people with additional work commitments, allowing a flexible rate of attendance (one to four modules per year). The MSc requires 180 credits, the Postgraduate Diploma requires 120 credits and the Postgraduate Certificate requires 60 credits. For a full list of modules, please see the relevant pages on our website. Assessment If you are registered on the Postgraduate Certificate you will be required to complete four 15-credit modules, which are all compulsory. If you are registered on the Postgraduate Diploma you will be required to complete eight 15-credit modules. Four of these modules are compulsory, two or three are recommended (see table) and the remainder optional. In addition to this, the MSc award requires the completion of a 15?20,000-word dissertation, linked to the Research Methods module. A viva voce examination may be required by external examiners.
