It will enhance knowledge and skills in all aspects of clinical research, drug regulation and drug safety.

DESCRIPTION

Pharmaceutical Medicine is the medical scientific discipline concerned with the discovery, development, evaluation, registration, monitoring and medical aspects of the marketing of medicines for the benefit of patients and the health of the community.

In this rapidly expanding field of medicine there is a need for high quality education programmes that are compliant with the PharmaTrain initiative of the European Commission, but also with the Bologna Process. The programmes at King’s are the first in the UK that meet both of these requirements and is the UK’s first PharmaTrain Centre of Excellence. This, plus the opportunity to study at a world class university makes King’s the ideal place at which to study for one of these MSc subjects.

Translational Medicine is an emerging and highly topical discipline that involves the translation of science from the bench to the bedside, and much of this is focussed on novel drug therapies. The bank of in vitro, pre-clinical and human testing required to do this often leaves scientists bemused, but experts in translational medicine can plot a pathway to enable the very best therapies to be tested in human subjects.

The MSc programmes will not only equip the students with a broad knowledge and understanding of the whole of the drug development process and the medical aspects of the marketing of pharmaceutical products but also give them the opportunity to undertake a research project that will enable them to apply these skills and should lead to one or more publications.



EXTRA PROGRAMME INFORMATION

Additional laboratory costs may be incurred depending on the consumables required for individual projects. Each module in this programme is delivered as a distinct, intensive 4 or 5-day taught course, plus pre and post-course reading and assignments.
