Pharmacology is the science of drugs. The objective of Pharmacology is mainly to provide such scientific data, using which one can choose a drug treatment of proven efficacy and safety from the various options available, to suit the patient.
Like other biomedical sciences, the boundaries of Pharmacology are extending and it tends to have more than other disciplines. As a multidisciplinary subject its aim is to work with other medical disciplines to optimize the treatment modalities for better patient care which will subsequently reflect in the form of healthy society. The new arrivals on the fringe are pharmacogenomics, Pharmacoepidemiology and Pharmacoeconomics. Pharmacology has an important role in pharmaceutical industry where drug discovery and clinical trials are all based on pharmacological principles
The Department of Pharmacology of GMC Anantnag, is involved in teaching Pharmacology to undergraduate MBBS (3rd to 4th semester) and Para-medical students.
Introduction of bedside pharmacology to students at early stage of teaching will give insight of rational therapeutics and adverse drug reaction monitoring
Practical demonstrations on computer simulations and manikins for appropriate skill achievement
Tutorials and seminars will be conducted for regular updates of the knowledge of newer drugs, indications and adverse effects
Motivation to carry out research works and clinical trials for gaining practical know how for future research works
