Course Description

This course introduces pharmacology as the study of drugs. The course begins with an explanation of therapeutic and adverse effects, in addition to the basic operation of the nervous system. Then, several body systems and the conditions that affect them are reviewed, with particular reference to the use of drugs to treat these conditions. Topics include muscle relaxants, anesthetics, pain medication, and nervous system and psychological disorders. As students work through this course, their appreciation of how drugs affect the body in intended and unintended ways will increase.

It was a really nice introductory course. One issue I had was that many test questions were confusing and debatable.

Unless you have a very strong science background, you will not do well in this course. Even with a strong background in science you MUST be able to teach yourself. I have a BS in Biochemistry and I found this course challenging.
