Pharmacology Volume 1 of 5
A patient who visits a physician or physician extender frequently receives a prescription for a medication. That prescription is brought to the pharmacy to be filled. The patient expects professional attention at the pharmacy. Part of that expectation involves any caution or warning the patient should heed while taking the medication. In your role you will serve as a source of drug information. Patients and friends will ask you specific questions concerning the use of prescription and over-the-counter medications. You must know the trade and generic names of literally hundreds of medications. Furthermore, you must know the cautions and warnings associated with many agents. This course will present instruction in anatomy, physiology, and pharmacology.
Pharmacology Volume 2 of 5
Volume 2, is intended to give you a review of certain essential anatomical and physiological concepts important to pharmacology and to introduce six categories of drugs. The review of anatomy and physiology should help you gain a better understanding of how the drugs work in the body and how they produce the side effects that are commonly associated with their use.
Pharmacology Volume 3 of 5
Drugs that act upon the respiratory system, cardiovascular system, or urinary system are frequently dispensed in pharmacies.

Pharmacology Volume 4 of 5
Pharmacology Volume 4, other systems of the body (for example, the digestive system) and the drugs used to treat conditions of those systems will be discussed. As in the other pharmacology courses, you will be provided background material in anatomy, physiology, and pathology in order to help you learn about the specific drugs discussed in the course.
