2017-2018 Principles of Pediatric Clinical Pharmacology Course

The Principles of Pediatric Clinical Pharmacology lecture series has been designed to mirror the Principles of Clinical Pharmacology series offered by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Clinical Center. The series will address the fundamentals of clinical pharmacology from a pediatric perspective. Weekly lectures will be given via Webinar in a variety of topics, including drug metabolism and transport, assessment of drug effects, pharmacotherapy, and pediatric drug formulations. A unique aspect of this lecture series will be a pharmacotherapy module which is intended to bridge the gap between clinical pharmacologists and subspecialists – in particular, special courses will be offered which examine the appropriate use of drug therapies in a number of subspecialties including infectious diseases, asthma, and pediatric oncology. The course will be taught by faculty from leading academic institutions across the United States, and staff from the NIH and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

This lecture series has been specifically designed to meet the needs of pediatric clinical pharmacology students who lack a formal educational curriculum in this discipline. T32 trainees in pediatric clinical pharmacology are expected to attend all lectures.

Lectures will take place weekly on Wednesdays from 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM US Eastern Time, beginning on October 4, 2017 and running through June 6, 2018. 

We welcome your participation!
