Now Online, On Demand: Principles of Clinical Pharmacology Course

This past November, the NIH Principles of Clinical Pharmacology course relaunched online. It is a free lecture series covering the fundamentals of clinical pharmacology as a translational scientific discipline. The course consists of approximately 50 lectures by thought-leaders from around the world. Topics covered in the course include pharmacokinetics, drug metabolism and transport, drug therapy in special populations, assessment of drug effects, drug discovery and development, pharmaco-genomics and pharmacotherapy. Registration is now closed, but mark your calendar for the 2018-2019 course, which is targeted to open registration in September. There is no continuing education credit offered for the course. However, a certificate of completion is awarded to registered participants who achieve a passing score on the final examination.
