Pharmacology includes everything related to the origin, manufacture, negotiation, physicochemical and biological properties of drugs, including the effects of animal and human disease processes. Manufacturing and negotiation is generally referred to as pharmacy, so that the pharmacology in a narrower sense includes studies on the use of drugs in the treatment of disease (pharmacotherapy).
The aim is for the student to gain such insight that, in his later practice as a doctor, he will be able to use pharmacotherapy in an optimal and responsible manner.
The teaching should provide the student with an understanding of the mechanisms of action of drugs, their destiny in the organism and the main pharmacokinetic principles. The student should be able to establish a rational pharmacotherapeutic strategy based on knowledge of the main therapeutic groups and the respective drugs.
In addition, the student must acquire knowledge of general toxicological mechanisms including the detection, prevention and treatment of certain types of poisoning.
Teaching includes Pharmacokinetics, anesthetics, analgesics, psychotropic drugs, diuretics, cardiac glycosides, vasodilators, chemotherapy and antibiotics, antiinflammatory drugs, pharmacokinetics of endocrine systems, pharmacology of autonomic nervous system, drug side effects, drug interactions, general toxicology and certain areas of special toxicology.
