Pharmacology

Overview

DEPARTMENT OVERVIEW

Our primary goal is to train undergraduate students in Pharmacology, as per theCompetency Based Medical Education curriculum, mandated by the NMC. The broadgoal of teaching pharmacology to the undergraduate medical students is ‘to apply basic principles of pharmacology andtherapeutics and to inculcate a rational and scientific basis oftherapeutics’. 

The department is also involved for facilitation of basic andapplied research that significantly advances current pharmacological knowledge.


Facilities

CURRICULUM OF PHARMACOLOGY

 

i) Goal

The broad goal of the teaching ofundergraduate students in Pharmacology is to inculcate a rational andscientific basis of therapeutics. 

ii) Objectives

a. Knowledge

At theend of the course, the student should be able to: 

1.     Describe the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics ofessential and commonly used drugs. 

2.     Listthe indications, contraindications, interactions and adversereactions of commonly used drugs. 

3.     Indicatethe use of appropriate drug in a particular disease with consideration to itscost, efficacy and safety for 

·        individualneeds.

·        masstherapy under national health program. 

4.     Describethe pharmacokinetic basis, clinical presentation, diagnosis and managementof common poisonings. 

5.     Listthe drugs of addiction and recommend the management. 

6.     Classifyenvironmental and occupational pollutants and state the management 
 issues.

7.     Indicate causationsin prescription of drugs in special medical situations such aspregnancy, lactation, infancy and old age. 

8.     Integratethe concept of rational drug therapy in clinical pharmacology. 

9.     Statethe principles underlying the concept of ’Essential Drugs' 

10. Evaluate the ethics and modalities involved in thedevelopment and introduction of new drugs. 

b. Skills

At theend of the course, the student should be able to: 

1.     Prescribedrugs for common ailments. 

2.     Recognize adversereactions and interactions of commonly used drugs. 

3.     Observeexperiments designed for study of effects of drugs, bioassay andinterpretation of the experimental data. 

4.     Scaninformation on common pharmaceutical preparations and critically evaluatedrug formulations. 

c. Integration

Practical knowledge of use of drugs in clinicalpractice will be acquired through integrated teaching with clinical departmentsand pre-clinical departments.
