Pharmacology made easy
By Mah M. on 03. July 2021 for CNS - Pharmacology

I don't think anyone had explained pharmacology in such a way that I understood, the way Dr Shukle did. Best course

Excellent Resources!

Thank you so much for creating such an amazing educational site. I loved it so much that I sent it to several of my nurse practitioner classmates. We all use this site weekly to reinforce graduate level learning on anatomy, physiology and pharmacology. The concepts taught are easy to understand, provide wonderful tips and tricks to remember the information taught and the quizzes are great too. I will definitely be using this site again before taking my boards. Best resource ever!

Good explanation

Very poorly presented and connected. The lectures dont have any fluidity as a whole , and just slide reading is there. A different lecturer should teach pharmacology
