TCD are currently taking applications for the Postgrad Diploma/MSc in Pharmaceutical Medicine. This course has been developed to provide medical and science graduates with specialist knowledge and skills in the area of clinical pharmacology and pharmaceutical medicine. Many pharmacists who have transitioned to industry in recent years have undertaken this course. Components of the course include principles of:
- Pharmacology and biostatistics
- New drug development and the regulatory environment
- Pharmacoeconomics and rational use of drugs
- Pharmacovigilance and drug information
The course involves completion of taught modules and the additional undertaking of a research project. The modules consist of formal teaching and personal assignments and are run over five terms on a part-time basis (approximately two modules per term). Some of the modules are undertaken by way of distance learning. In addition, the students are assigned a research project (including field work), to be submitted as a dissertation for the MSc degree only.
Closing date for applications is 31st July 2019.
