Course Aims:

The courses will equip candidates with a sound understanding of the management of common medical conditions and develop skills in evidence-based medicine. Successful candidates will have gained the knowledge and understanding to act as the "local therapeutics expert".

The Department of Pharmacology, Therapeutics and Toxicology at Cardiff has a major commitment to teaching postgraduate and undergraduate students. A key aim of our teaching programmes is to encourage critical thinking, as we equip our students not only with practical and factual knowledge, but also provide a basic approach to therapeutic problems, encouraging attitudes and abilities which will be of lasting value in dealing with future advances in therapy.
