Research & Impact
King’s offers three MSc programmes in Pharmaceutical Medicine. Pharmaceutical Medicine is the scientific discipline for the discovery, development, evaluation, registration, monitoring and medical marketing of medicines for the benefit of patients and the public.
In every MSc you will learn the clinical development process, from early-phase studies to post-marketing activities and also the regulation of medicines and pharmacovigilance. Then, depending on the MSc you choose, you will specialise in either the pharmacological issues of the development of medicines, the science of the development of medicines or medical affairs.
You will also undertake a research project that will give you the academic mastery of a subject of cutting-edge importance in your chosen sector of pharmaceutical medicine.
