PHA 655 - Pharmacokinetics + Recitation

Credit Hours: 4
This course builds on the biopharmaceutical and pharmacokinetics principles taught in Pharmaceutics II. The course and recitation is designed to deliver the concepts of pharmacokinetics with clinical applications. Necessary mathematical expressions and equations needed to calculate pharmacokinetics parameters describing absorption, distribution, metabolism, and excretion of drugs will receive particular focus. The course and recitation will also address clinical application of the basic pharmacokinetic principles and mathematical equations to safe and effective patient care with emphasis on design of dosage regimens and therapeutic drug monitoring, adjustment of drug dosages in selected disease states and significant drug-drug interactions scenarios. Additionally, the course and recitation will introduce the influence of pharmacogenetics in pharmacokinetics and concepts in pharmacokinetic - pharmacodynamic relationship. The course and recitation intercalate practice problems and assignments to enable students to nurture interpersonal skills through team activities.
