The course will consider drug absorption, distribution, metabolism, elimination, and pharmacodynamic effects on the human body. Prescription drug classification, function and uses will be introduced with emphasis on the impact medically prescribed drug classification, function and uses will be introduced with emphasis on the impact medically prescribed drugs will have on the patient. Students will increase their understanding of drug design and action, as well s their understanding of disease and pharmacoltherapeutic treatment.
