Course objectives
On completion of the course students are oriented in integration of the biomedical fields 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 distinguish among drug classes according to their main therapeutic indications with an attention paid to common drug-drug interactions. Course-leavers are able to use appropriate "pharmacological thinking" for making a choice of drug, dosing regimen, route and techniques of administration, and make calculations of basic pharmakokinetic parameters and data needed for individual preparation of liquid drug dosage forms.

Teaching methods
Students are expected to attend lectures according to schedule and to prepare for lectures from meterials provided by the teacher and recommended literature.
Assessment methods
During the studying the students have to prove active knowledge of pharmacology acquired. The students have to pass the exam: final written multiple-choice test. In the Final Exam students are asked to answers to multiple-choice questions. Only 1 correct answer is possible to each question. The test contains 30 questions generated randomly for each single student. One point is granted for each correctly answered question. To pass the exam 60 % of points of the possible maximum is needed. Grades are set as follows: A (27-30 marks), B (25-26 marks), C (23-24 marks), D (20-22 marks), E (18-19 marks), F (0-17 marks).
