Specialty Registrar (StR) training at Pharmacology
The British Pharmacological Society provides dedicated annual training and assessment sessions for Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics (CPT) StRs during the annual Pharmacology meeting. The sessions aim to cover the major sections of the specialty training curriculum. As a learning aid our speaker presentations are made available online after the training session.

- Detection and analysis of adverse drug effects.
- Contributing to the evaluation of medicines.
- And, poisoning management.
