- Course Enrolment Limitations
- The course is only offered to the students of the study fields the course is directly associated with.
- fields of study / plans the course is directly associated with
- Course objectives
- On completion of the course the student will be able to use formally correct terminology belonging to the valid Pharmacopoea in prescription and making of drug dosage forms of both individually prepared and bulk preparations. The student should be able to understand principles of "pharmacological thinking" for choosing a drug, dosing regimen, pharmacokinetic parameter calculation, differences in administration routes and specifics of pediatric and geriatric pharmacotherapy including possible impact of drug-drug interactions.
