Early Career Clinical Pharmacology Competition 2022

Course/Event Date: Tuesday, September 13, 2022

Course/Event Duration: 2 Days

Course/Event Description

We have recently launched the 2022 Early Career Clinical Pharmacology Competition, hosted by the British Pharmacological Society.  The competition is open to medical and pharmacy students, doctors in training (up to and including IMT) and pharmacists (bands 5-7). 

The aim of the competition is to encourage students and healthcare professionals to improve their knowledge and skills of pharmacology and safe and effective prescribing and to celebrate their valuable contributions to the field of clinical pharmacology.

To be eligible for the competition, applicants must have a poster accepted for presentation at our annual conference Pharmacology 2022.  Applicants must attend the conference to present their poster to the competition judges, who will decide the top posters in the undergraduate and postgraduate categories.

We welcome abstracts relating to:

  • Research projects linked to clinical pharmacology
  • Audit or quality improvement project on the use of medicines
  • Education abstracts on safe prescribing or use of medicines
  • Interesting case reports related to clinical pharmacology. Examples could include (but not limited to), adverse effects of medication, drug-drug interactions, polypharmacy, role of therapeutic drug monitoring and pharmacogenomics

Presenters of the best undergraduate and postgraduate posters will receive a £250 prize in a ceremony at Pharmacology 2022. They will also be invited to give a 5-minute presentation about their project at a subsequent national training event for clinical pharmacologists.

Please submit your abstract via the main Pharmacology 2022 portal, and tick the box to state that you would like to be considered for the Early Career Clinical Pharmacology Competition, by the 6 May 2022. Please follow the abstract submission guidelines.

Pharmacology 2022 is held from 13 – 14 September 2022 in Liverpool. For further details, visit the Pharmacology 2022 event website.
