Pharmacology

OVERVIEW:

Pharmacology

Pharmacology is a subject, which connects the other disciplines of pharmaceutical sciences with medicine. This branch of science equips a student with the ability to appreciate the establishment of dose, dosage, efficacy and safety of medicines, their mechanisms and disposition. Department of Pharmacology strives to train undergraduate and diploma students. We believe that a good physician has to be a good pharmacologist too. We help our students to gain a thorough knowledge of medications, such as various routes of administration, mechanisms of action, pharmacokinetics, adverse drug reactions and dosage schedules. With well-qualified and experienced faculty guiding them, students can look forward to an interesting course. The faculty keep themselves up-to-date by participating in national and international conferences and-presenting scientific papers. This in turn keeps students updated.

VISION:

  • To understand the general principles of drug action and select, prescribe suitable drugs according to the need of the patient. 
  • To appreciate the essential drug concepts and translate that in terms of drug needs for a given community.

  • To produce competent healthcare professionals and scientists able to apply their knowledge in drug development and patient care. 

CORE COMPETENCIES:

Pharmacology gives immense scope for exploration in to diversified subdomains such as-

  • Tissue based experiments
  • Animal handling
  • In-vivo and in-vitro pharmacological experimentation
  • Academic pre-requisites of clinical research
  • Biological screening of herbs/herbal/ traditional product
