The Department of Bioengineering and Therapeutic Sciences, UCSF Schools of Pharmacy and Medicine, is pleased to announce that the 29th annual five-day fundamentals course on Pharmacokinetics for Pharmaceutical Scientists will be held on February 29 - March 4, 2016 at the Mission Bay Conference Center at UCSF in San Francisco. The course will emphasize basic principles in pharmacokinetics. Presentations will be delivered via lectures and multiple small-group workshops. Pending an update for the 2016 course, we have left the 2015 course information up and advise that some of the content of this course usually changes from year to year as improvements are made.
The first three and one-half days of this limited-enrollment course will be devoted to essential pharmacokinetic parameters and how they are employed to summarize and predict temporal relationships. The balance of the course will focus on elective topics as an introduction to more specific pharmacokinetic interests and applications. There are six elective topics. Because of simultaneous presentation, participants will be able to attend only three of the six elective-topic lectures but will have choices as outlined on the registration form and will receive the written materials from all six electives. See Elective Topics and the Schedule for more detail.
Participants interested in then going on to a subsequent satellite course (commencing immediately after the elective-topics component of this course) will find information under Optional Extra Courses.
