Pharmacology

Introduction

Pharmacology & Therapeutics is one of the para-clinical disciplines that form an ideal interface effectively bridging the basic and clinical specialties. The department aims to provide high-quality holistic education to undergraduate medical and dental students keeping in pace with dynamic academic requirements. The fundamental principles of basic and clinical pharmacology are delivered to the future generation of medical professionals through formal lectures, class seminars, grouped tutorials, and case-based discussions.
The department houses a state of the art pharmacodynamic laboratory, a museum, and AV equipped tutorial rooms providing an excellent space for small group activities and departmental interactions. The laboratory has top-notch facilities to affirm the factual aspects of theoretical knowledge of Pharmacology. The museum has well-displayed samples of pharmaceuticals and pharmacognosy preparations and dosage forms.
Hospital visits make up an integral part of teaching so that the students are better acclimatized with the concept of rational drug prescription and p-drug. The department also encourages research within available resources by making small projects to provide an evidence-based advanced understanding of drug actions and applications in the alleviation of human diseases. The department also arranges educational visits to pharmaceutical facilities in the nearby vicinity to enable students to observe the manufacturing process of drugs, on the ground.
