Department of Pharmacology is one of the five basic sciences departments in the medical graduation course which is concerned with the study of drugs. As we all know that the use of drugs or medicines is one of the principal ways of combating disease, therefore a good physician has to be a good pharmacologist and it becomes mandatory to find out “how the drugs work” and “how they can best be used in the treatment of various diseases”. Today the maximum information explosion has taken place in the field of mainly pharmacology and biochemistry and Pharmacology has become a volatile subject with rapidly changing concepts of treatment. Drugs of choice till few years ago are rapidly changing, being considered taboo now days. Therefore, department of Pharmacology is concerned with the basic fundamentals and thorough knowledge of drugs or medicines, such as various routes of administration, mechanisms of action, their biological effects, pharmacokinetics, adverse drug reactions, therapeutic uses and dosage schedules. It is also concerned with recent advances of various diseases through the development of new and successful drugs which requires advances and insights generated by scientific research.
The course content of the Pharmacology is as per the regulations, prescribed by the Medical Council of India and MJP Rohilkhand University, Bareilly. Pharmacology course is taught in three semesters of six months each, in form of didactic lectures, practical, tutorials, seminars and demonstrations.
Laboratory sessions of Pharmacology curriculum, for undergraduates have undergone a significant change in the current year. Animal experimentation (isolated tissue experiments) have been minimised in the form of demonstrations only. These have been replaced by computer-simulated exercises. Regarding the pharmacy lab, besides the conventional practical classes, prescription writing, and dose calculation exercises, therapeutic and drug interaction exercises are also included in the course.
