This basic course in pharmacology is taken with the sophomore medical student class, introducing the student to the basic concepts of the interactions of chemical agents with living tissues. Demonstrations performed by the graduate students are presented to illustrate basic pharmacological principles and exemplify the therapeutic and toxic actions of important drugs and poisons. The teaching of basic pharmacology is emphasized, but toxicology and therapeutics are also part of the course.
Letter-graded. Open to Ph.D. students only.
