This set of courses will discuss the discipline of pharmacology and its integration throughout medical science. Specifically, the content will be organized as follows: 1) Basic Pharmacological Principles; 2) Applied Pharmacology, the concept of applying the basic principles to each organ system with an emphasis on melding pathophysiology with biologic targets for drug therapy; 3) Therapeutics, considered to be the clinical application of applied pharmacology, including the financial implications of therapy, evidence-based medicine, and the limitations of drug therapy and future directions of therapeutics in all disease states, as well as the legal implications of prescription writing; and 4) Advanced Pharmacological Principles, such as cancer therapeutics.

The teacher has a professional manner, she is precise about what is required so there is no doubt about the concepts to be learned. Lectures are well structured, clear and uncluttered. They are not divided up into mini-lectures or include quiz questions, so they are quite long. A weekly quiz tests on understanding basic concepts. There is an opportunity to retry the test, which I found helpful in the learning process.

Taking this course helped me gain more understanding of other Health Sciences courses and was a sound basic introduction to pharmacology.
