About this course

Pharmacology is the branch of medicine concerned with studying the composition, uses, effects, and modes of action of drugs, especially with relation to their therapeutic value. It is heavily reliant on the previous comprehension of basic sciences, such as chemistry and physiology.

It is important to relate pharmacologic concepts to the normal physiologic processes of the human body. The study of pharmacology and administration of medications is not an isolated field of medicine. It is one of the focal points of modern science and research activities.

A solid grasp of pharmacology allows one to manage or even cure thousands of conditions. From choosing the correct antibiotic for a specific infection, or correcting a hormonal imbalance, to avoiding life-threatening drug interactions, the study of pharmacology is the basis of therapeutic medicine.
