New perspectives in pharmaceutical medicine
King’s is delighted to announce the launch of a suite of MSc programmes and short courses for physicians, pharmacists and scientists in Pharmaceutical Medicine.
Following the success of short courses offered in Clinical Pharmacology, Regulatory Affairs and Clinical Development, King’s has developed a suite of part-time programmes for healthcare professionals and scientists in the field of clinical drug development. Three pathways are offered:
Clinical Pharmacology (MSc/PG Dip/Cert)
Drug Development Science MSc (MSc/PG Dip/Cert)
Translational Medicine MSc (MSc/PG Dip/Cert)
The programmes cover a comprehensive range of topics within Pharmaceutical Medicine, including the discovery, development, evaluation, registration, monitoring and medical marketing of medicines for the benefit of patients and the public. All aspects of the clinical development process are covered in 14 complementary modules, from early studies to post-marketing activities.
The programmes provide postgraduate level training for senior scientific and clinical roles and, as such, are designed to fit in with busy working professionals. The modular structure of the programmes makes it easy for students to gain a qualification from a top-rated university without the need for prolonged absence from work. Each module is completed in a four or five day block. With credits awarded for each module, students can choose to complete only one, or go on to achieve a Certificate, Diploma or MSc degree by completing approved sets of modules.
Key benefits include:
Central London location
Taught by leading experts from academia and industry
Flexible structure designed for busy working professionals
Flexible pathways – choose to study one module up to an MSc
Some modules are accredited by the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Medicine
Aligned with the European PharmaTrain syllabus
The programmes start in November 2010 and applications are being taken now.
