2018-2019 Principles of Pediatric Clinical Pharmacology Course

The Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development launched the Principles of Pediatric Clinical Pharmacology lecture series to 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 is the pharmacotherapy module which is intended to bridge the gap between clinical pharmacologists and subspecialists – in particular, special courses will be offered to examine the appropriate use of drug therapies in a number of subspecialties including infectious diseases, asthma, and pediatric oncology. Lectures in the pharmacotherapy module include a segment called the FDA Corner featuring a discussion of regulatory issues by a member of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recruited based on their specific area of expertise.

The 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.

The course is taught by faculty from leading academic institutions across the United States, and staff from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and FDA. Lectures will take place weekly on Wednesdays from 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM US Eastern Time, beginning on October 3, 2018 and running through May 22, 2019.

We welcome your participation!
