Antimicrobial Pharmacology

by Pravin Shukle, MD

Antimicrobial drugs can be defined as a group of compounds that target different components of microorganisms, rendering them unable to continue their basic functions and/or promoting their death. Since the discovery of penicillin in the 20th century, antimicrobial agents have revolutionized the practice of medicine, making infectious diseases a secondary concern for the first time in human history, at least in the Western world.

Because of the capabilities of microorganisms to develop resistance to existing agents, new molecules have had to be developed and introduced into practice, making it a clinician’s responsibility to stay up-to-date on new therapeutic options.

In this course, the student will be introduced to the main families of antimicrobial agents against bacteria, viruses, parasites and fungi.

For optimal comprehension, the student is required to have previous understanding of molecular and cell biology, histology, physiology, and microbiology.

Loved the course! I would have liked to see more focus on commonly used antibiotics in primary care and more examples on types of commonly treated illnesses. Thank you
