About the Course

The practice of pharmacology began ages ago and usage of various substances to relieve suffering has been recorded throughout history by almost every culture. Modern trends have systematically revised and improved the fundamental and unscientific ways of the discipline.
In this course on general pharmacology, basic concepts like routes of drug administration, innovations in drug delivery system, pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, therapeutic drug monitoring, drug interactions, adverse drug reactions, and clinical trials have been explained in detail.
All these concepts form the basic foundation of pharmacological knowledge and understanding.

Target Audience

Medical students – Allopathy, Dental.

Alternative Medicine students – Homeopathy, Ayurveda.

Para/Allied medical students – Nursing, Physiotherapy, BSc Pharmacology.

Post graduate students –  General medicine, Family medicine, 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
