PHPR 3843 - Pharmacotherapy VI (3)

Course content is to be presented in modules focusing on organ systems (e.g., endocrinology, reproductive systems), disease states (e.g., diabetes, thyroid disorder, eclampsia), or patient populations (e.g., pediatrics, geriatrics, women’s health). Modules will be sequenced so that organ systems and disease states are covered first and then followed by unique patient populations. Content of these modules are to include pathophysiology; clinical signs and symptoms; diagnostic testing; therapeutic drug classes and literature supporting their use; principles of clinical practice guidelines for various disease states and their interpretation in the clinical setting; drug monitoring, including applied pharmacokinetics; design of patient centered, culturally relevant treatment plans; special populations; and development of treatment protocols. The course will consist of didactic lectures, case-based teaching and small group discussions.
