Learn pharmacology online with Lecturio and Dr. Pravin J. Shukle

Whether you are treating hypertension, asthma, or depression, the mainstay of therapy is always medication. In this course, one of North America's most popular speakers will guide you through the most important pharmacological topics.

Dr. Shukle has extensive experience in disseminating knowledge about drugs to a wide target audience. His educational background is an eclectic mix of physiology, pharmacy, medicine, and even Greek and Roman literature! His vast and varied experience in medicine includes everything from treating solvent abuse in children, to pesticide toxicity in farmers, to complex diabetic or cardiac care, up to working in an intensive care unit. Furthermore, the broad-based appeal of Dr. Shukle has made him one of the most sought after lecturers at medical conferences, for educational events for nurses, and for CME events involving both family and specialist physicians.

It is assumed you have the basic sciences of biology, chemistry and biochemistry covered. The course will start off with a review of the intermediate science of pharmacology. It will then move on to each of the clinical systems, starting with the pharmacology of the autonomic nervous system. Questions similar to the board exams and recertification exams of the US, Canada, and Europe, will be posed, answered, and discussed during the lectures.

Learning outcomes:

  1. Pass your exams. Understanding what the examiner is looking for will go a long way in achieving your goal of a perfect score.
  2. Learn about drugs in a systematic and coherent way. Drugs will be discussed as classes in order to make sense of the 45,000 drugs you may use, and to understand the 1000 new drugs that hit the market each year.
  3. Become a better doctor. It isn't just about memorizing drug classes or formulae. If you understand pharmacology, you will be able to manipulate the body's chemistry to aid in absorption, metabolism, and excretion. If you understand the clinical manifestations of toxicity from a pharmacological perspective, you can act quickly in the clinic, the operating room, or the ER.

By Bjarni J. on 18. October 2017 for Questions and Case Studies – Drugs in Hypertension

I loved how you dissected the topic so clearly, making clear distinctions between the different classes of drugs, how they work, where they work, why we use them and who needs them. GREAT lecture.
