The following lessons provide a structured overview of clinical pharmacology and pharmacometrics, and is part of a set of training activities offered by Pharmacometrics Africa to support the development of pharmacometric competency and expertise in Africa and low and middle income countries.

Pharmacometrics is the science of developing and applying mathematical and statistical models to characterize, understand and predict a drug's pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics and biomarker-outcome behavior. By using pharmacometrics, researchers can model the characteristics of new drugs to simulate and predict their behavior when administered, which can then enable more efficient development of new drugs and to improve use of existing drugs.


The Clinical Pharmacology and Pharmacometrics course comprises ten lessons which cover key aspects of clinical pharmacology and mathematical modelling that underpin the principles of pharmacometrics. This is a companion course to a directed learning program.
