What is Clinical Pharmacology?
Clinical Pharmacology promotes the rational use of medications in humans by studying their restorative effect to amplify the drugs effect and reduce the side effects. Clinical pharmacologists bridge the gap between science and the practice of medicine through innovative research, development and regulation of medications.
Clinical Pharmacology educates healthcare professionals on a range of topics that involve the interaction between drugs and humans. These topic areas include, but are not limited to, pharmaceutical chemistry, biochemistry, drug metabolism, pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, pharmacometrics, pharmacogenomics clinical pharmacology practice in the outpatient and inpatient settings, human toxicology, drug interactions and clinical drug trials.
