Pharmacokinetics refers to how drugs interact with the human body, from their absorption to their excretion. Pharmacodynamics encompass a group of parameters that describe how the body reacts or responds to a drug. A solid grasp of pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics enables clinicians to understand the most adequate administration and dosage of every pharmacological agent.
In this course, the student will be introduced to the concepts of absorption, distribution, biotransformation, drug receptors and effects, upregulation and downregulation, potency, toxicity, and elimination kinetics.
For optimal comprehension, the student is required to have a previous understanding of molecular and cell biology and physiology, with an emphasis on liver metabolism and clearance by the kidney.
Hard to understand concept and I don’t feel more prepared
The videos are generally not too long and easy to follow along with the teacher
I find the lectures very helpful in my revision and informative. The way the information is presented makes it easier to understand compared to previous lectures. It is as if I am hearing the information for the first time.
The lectures compliment my study books and other materials. I will most likely watch some of them again.
