About The Courses

Phar 454

This course introduces pharmacy students to drug therapy considerations specific to the pediatric population (neonate, infant, child and adolescent). Topics covered emphasize major and common medical conditions and drug-related issues affecting the pediatric age groups, and the social and pharmacological aspects of pediatric development process. Challenges in the delivery of pharmaceutical care to these groups are discussed.

Phar 501 & Phar 533-4

Pharmacy 501 is the Advanced Pharmacotherapeutics Course which covers the management of selected acute and chronic diseases and disorders. The emphasis is on designing and monitoring of drug therapy to ensure optimal therapeutic outcomes. The teaching format employed in the course is case-based. Pharmacy 533 and Pharmacy 534 are the experiential training component of the Program which entails students completing a total of eight mandatory and four elective rotations which provide students with the opportunity to apply knowledge acquired in the classroom to the practice of pharmacy in a variety of patient care settings. Core rotations in adult internal medicine, ambulatory care, cardiology, infectious diseases, critical care, emergency medicine, pediatrics, and psychiatry are required for all students. The elective rotations are selected by the student from a variety of research and other clinical specialty areas.
