Department of Pharmacology

Pharmacology deals with the study of drugs and drug development. Basically it says what the drug does to the body and what the body does to the drug when administered. Pharmacology was traditionally associated with study of drugs in animals while the clinical application was regarded as an entirely independent and mystical skill of the practitioner. Now with the concept of "Evidence Based Medicine", the aim of teaching Pharmacology to medical students is to
provide a rational basis for choosing and using drugs skillfully to relieve patients ailments based on the information obtained from clinical trials.
