About the Course

Pharmacology studies the mechanism and site of the action of drugs, in the whole human body down to its individual cells. It also studies the mechanism by which the body handles drugs along with the modes of their administration, their absorption and distribution within the body, and their eventual inactivation or excretion.
This course on pharmacology covers in detail various topics such as, general pharmacology, autonomic nervous system, peripheral nervous system, autacoids and related drugs, respiratory system, cardiovascular system, drugs acting on blood and blood formation, gastrointestinal system, endocrine system, central nervous system, toxicology, chemotherapy, clinical pharmacology and rational drug use etc.

Target Audience

Medical students – Allopathy, Dental
Alternative Medicine students – Homeopathy, Ayurveda
Para/Allied medical students – Nursing, Physiotherapy, BSc Pharmacology
Post graduate students – MD/MSc/PhD Pharmacology

Course Delivery Format

This course is delivered entirely online. It consists of a series of comprehensive lectures by a professor in the subject, appropriately annotated with slides, animations and wherever necessary, interactive content. The delivery offers tremendous flexibility. You may pause a teacher while you refer to your textbooks (not includes) and to take notes. You may also rewind a segment to listen to the teacher again or you may skip a slide or two if you already know that bit. You may bookmark a segment that you wish to return to later, maybe to refresh just before your exams.  While the lessons in this course may be arranged in a particular order based on our curriculum, you have the flexibility to take them in order of your preference based on your personalized learning needs.


While this course is to help you learn the subject from an online faculty, it may help you in several ways even if you are already enrolled in some medical, dental or paramedical school. Many of our students felt that the format in which this course is delivered has helped them to cope up against the fast paced lectures in actual class – it’s like having a TV remote in class to self-pace your teacher. Animations help understand concepts better by making concepts easy to understand… and difficult to forget
