CHM 360 Principles and Biochemical Mechanisms of Pharmacology, 2 credits

This lecture course is designed to provide the student with the knowledge to understand the fundamental principles and biochemical mechanisms of pharmacological applications, such as drug dosage, clearance, and metabolic action. Each student will become familiar with the complex mechanisms of action and clinical applications of a variety of the major categories and classes of pharmaceuticals, using illustrative prototypical agents. This course will offer both "high yield" facts and a sufficient framework for critical thinking and analysis, rather than just memorization.
