About Focus on Pharmacology

Focus on Pharmacology is an ambitious programme of work that aims to provide a better understanding of the current state of pharmacology teaching in the UK, alongside taking a broader look at the value of the discipline to the health and wealth of the UK.

We know that pharmacology helps tackle pressing health, social and economic challenges around the world by enabling:

  • Innovative research

  • Medicines discovery and development

  • Efficient, safe healthcare and prescribing

  • Informed decision making

Focus on Pharmacology will help gather the latest evidence about the teaching and application of pharmacology, and turn this into advice for educators, policy makers, Vice Chancellors – and importantly shape the Society’s own plans.

We expect the project to inform us about how the Society can best promote and advance our discipline in the coming years, and how to better support our current and future members in their places of work and study. We want to know how we can best equip ourselves to support pharmacology, from attracting the right students to continuing professional development.

Get involved today!
There will be many opportunities for members and other groups to engage with this important programme of work throughout the coming months. Keep an eye on the campaign homepage for the latest news and opportunities.
