The Clinical Pharmacology course at King's College London focuses on understanding what a drug is doing to the body (pharmacodynamics), what happens to a drug in the body (pharmacokinetics), and how drugs work in terms of treating a particular disease. It is designed for scientists, physicians, clinical scientists and allied health professionals interested in the clinical development process.
- King’s is ranked 13th in the world for Pharmacy & Pharmacology (QS World University Rankings by Subject 2020).
- Lectures delivered by a mixture of academics and leading industry experts from the pharmaceutical industry.

It is anticipated that modules and their international recognition will open up job opportunities that might have previously been beyond their reach and enhance their value to their employers. A clinical pharmacologist supports the discovery and development of new medicines, and improving understanding of existing ones. The Clinical Pharmacology Scientist aids in all aspects of medicine management. They provide specialist advice to healthcare professionals regarding medicines interactions and form a key part of groups aiming to translate novel therapeutics into medicines.
