There are two Pharmacology courses offered in Fall 2013 that could be of interest to students contemplating careers in medicine, biomedical research or the pharmaceutical industry:
1. PHCL 2001 Basics of Pharmacology: A Drug¹s Fantastic Voyage. This new course is designed as an introduction to the basic principles of pharmacology, and the only prerequisite is a first-year chemistry course.
2. PHCL 4001 Mechanisms of Drug Action. This is also an introductory course that covers some of the same material as PHCL 2001 but at a more advanced level. Biochemistry and advanced biology courses are recommended as prerequisites or should be taken concurrently. The course is consistently evaluated highly favorably. It is a good option for senior students who may not be sufficiently challenged by PHCL 2001, and it is an approved CBS elective for Biology, GCD and Neuroscience majors.
