Gastrointestinal Pharmacology

by Pravin Shukle, MD

Gastrointestinal (GI) pharmacology refers to the groups of drugs used to manage GI disorders and their symptoms. GI symptoms are among the most common complaints in the ER and outpatient care settings for both children and adults.

In this course, the student will be introduced to peptic ulcer medication, agents for motility disorders, pancreatic enzyme replacement therapy (PERT), and irritable bowel syndrome.

For optimal comprehension, the student is required to have a previous understanding of molecular and cell biology, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics, and GI physiology, with an emphasis on its motility and secretions.

I think it lacks important things and that it's too basic.

I used to think Dr. Raj was far and away the greatest medical educator alive. I didn't even watch anyone else. I used Lecturio just for Dr. Raj's videos. Dr. Raj is funnier, and perhaps more memorable. However, Dr. Shulke presents the same level of clear, concise explanations, the kind that only come from the mind of a master who has internalized the material to the point of making it look easy. I love the part where Dr. Shulke boldly calls prednisone a clumsy tool for incompetent practioners. That is with me forever. I feel bad for my classmates struggling through our professors' awkward lectures. .
