Course objectives
From the course on pharmacology students are expected to obtain: a) from lectures and seminars: a clarification of integration in the field of biomedical subjects such as chemistry, physiology, molecular biology, pathology and pathological physiology enabling them to understand why, what mechanism by, and what conditions on, drugs and their combinations may elicit therapeutic, adverse, and toxic effects. They will acquire an orientation in drug classes according to their main therapeutic indications with an attention paid to common drug-drug interactions, too. Information on drug development process, rules of preclinical and clinical drug testing will also be given. b) from practicals: a training in practical skills in "pharmacological thinking" in cases of need to make a choice of drug, dosing regimen, rout and techniques of administration, and an elimination of adverse interactions with drugs simultaneously given.
