Course objectives
At the end of the course, the student should be able to understand integration in the field of biomedical sciences such as chemistry, physiology, molecular biology, pathology and pathological physiology clarifying mechanisms of xenobiotic (including drugs) effects and under which conditions they and their combinations may elicit therapeutic, adverse, and toxic effects, and what is the relation to the dose given, administration route, the status of the organism (differences in pediatrics and geriatrics). They will be familiar with the requirements of "Good Clinical Practice" for development of new drugs, and duties of physicians in cooperation with the pharmaceutical industry and principles of pharmacovigilance.
