Clinical Pharmacology is concerned with the science of drugs and their use in humans. It encompasses all aspects of the safe, effective and rational use of medicines applied at individual, group, and population levels. Clinical Pharmacologists are physicians specialised in Clinical Pharmacology. People from a range of backgrounds are involved in Clinical Pharmacology, e.g. clinical pharmacy, experimental pharmacology and biochemistry, epidemiology, and other fields of medical practice.

The professional society for Clinical Pharmacology in Australasia is ASCEPT, which in turn is affiliated with international societies concerned with Clinical Pharmacology. The Clinical Special Interest Group of ASCEPT is ASCEPT’s forum for Clinical Pharmacology and will be open to all members of ASCEPT with an interest in Clinical Pharmacology (re-opening soon).
