Pharmacology

Fall Semester

Pharmacology I (4 Credit Hours)

Pharmacology is the comprehensive understanding of how a single chemical mechanism can stop or reverse a disease process and restore normal biochemical and physiological function. This course will emphasize that the basis for safe and effective drug therapy is a clear awareness of the following:

    1. A precise expectation of the therapeutic goal.
    2. The mechanistic cause of dysfunction or disease.
    3. The mechanism of action which a drug must apply in order to prevent, stop or reverse a disease or dysfunction.
    4. The limits to safe and effective drug action.
