Course Description

Our range of Model-based Drug Development CPD units provide you with the knowledge and skills in pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics for making evidence-based decisions at various stages of drug development.

If you are interested in studying model-based drug development at postgraduate level to further your professional prospects, but don't have the time to dedicate to a full master's course, you can take one or more units from our MSc as standalone continuing professional development (CPD) courses.

Students benefit from interaction with research staff at the renowned Centre for Applied Pharmacokinetic Research.

The CPD courses are designed for science, engineering or mathematics graduates, and scientists linked to the pharmaceutical industry who wish to expand their expertise while working in the industry.

You can transfer the credits earned through these CPD units to contribute towards an MSc award if you wish.
