Clinical Pharmacology from St George's, University of London is designed to provide you with a broad understanding of how drugs are developed, from discovery of molecules to treatment of patients. Distinctively from any other course Clinical Pharmacology blends fundamental science concepts of physiology, pathophysiology and cellular mechanisms with applied topics of drug development, clinical trials, regulation of medicines and governance. It provides insight into wide ranging aspects of human-drug interactions, whic It will equip you with the knowledge and skills to enter a career in the life sciences, working in industry, academia or healthcare, particularly in the development of new medicines.
- Industry: Potential employers include the pharmaceutical industry and contract research organisations. Clinical pharmacologists work on projects such as taking drugs that are proven to work in the laboratory and testing them in humans for the first time. They work on trials in volunteers and patients to find the right dose for new medicines and to test whether they work and are safe.
- Healthcare: Clinical pharmacologists may work as research assistants or coordinators in clinical trials units or more generally in hospitals and GP practices, testing new medicines in patients. People with a BSc in Clinical Pharmacology are well equipped to apply for graduate-entry healthcare programmes such as medicine or pharmacy.
- Academia: Clinical pharmacologists may work in university research laboratories, researching disease mechanisms and identifying treatment targets for new medicines. They could also go on to teach pharmacology to undergraduates on BSc courses.
- Regulation: Potential employers include organisations such as the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE), the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) and the NHS. Clinical pharmacologists play an important role in pulling together information about drugs and in analysing data and writing reports to support healthcare professionals in making decisions to help patients.
