Course Description:

The Medical Pharmacology course stresses key principles of pharmacological science (pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics and toxicity) while describing the chemistry, mechanism of action, clinical uses, adverse effects, drugs of abuse and toxic agents. The primary goals are to provide future physicians with a strong foundation in pharmacological knowledge that will allow them to: obtain optimal benefit from their clinical years of instruction; build pharmacological expertise throughout their careers; and critically evaluate the merits of new and old drugs in the future.
