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.

Dosing
By Candace I. on 23. April 2017 for CNS - Pharmacology

I'm learning lots from the pharmacology lectures. However, they would be even better if they were to include mention of typical dosing regimens. Thanks!

Nice speed and good lecture notes. Our uni doesn't cover toxicology well and this course was perfect for revision.

 
Great lecturer
By SAKDA H. on 03. April 2017 for Antimicrobial Pharmacology

The lecturer is really good in explaining the concepts and has really great clarity. It feels so good to listen to him and understand the underlying pharmacological principles

 
some remarks
By Ala B. on 02. April 2017 for Pharmacology

The slides are not bad, pretty well detailed, deliver what's important and contain up to date information, However the lecturer makes minor mistakes in some of the videos, e.g, (P.jiroveci in the antimalarials --> P.jiroveci=Pneumocystis and not Plasmodium). I know this sounds trivial, but I believe that Medicine is a field where minor mistakes are least tolerable, some topics like antithyroids I couldn't find in the endocrinology pharmacology. I'm still not regretting subscribing, but I hope that you take this criticism in a positive way to ensure a high quality, which is very important for medical students nowadays, due to the endless number of different resources and the limited time to go through all of them.
