Cellular and biochemical effects that explain the therapeutic or adverse effects of drugs. These will be integrated into considerations of drug effects, toxicities and interactions between drugs.

Pharmacology 2 - PCOL744 (3 hours)

Professional (Pharmacy) | Spring

Cellular and biochemical effects that explain the therapeutic or adverse effects of drugs. These will be integrated into considerations of drug effects, toxicities and interactions between drugs.

Pharmacology and Therapeutics - PCOL760 (5 hours)

Professional (Dental) | Fall

Lecture and demonstrations relevant to explaining how drugs function in the human body. Team teaching by basic science faculty and clinical dental faculty.

Medical Pharmacology - PCOL801 (7 hours)

Professional (Medical) | Fall-Spring

Basic principles of drug action, mechanisms of therapeutic effects and undesirable effects. Emphasis on the classes of drugs currently used in medical practice.

Summer Medical Pharmacology - PCOL801 / PCOL770 (9 hours)

Professional (Medical, Dental, Pharmacy, Pediatric Medicine) | Summer

Online course covering basic principles of drug action, mechanisms of therapeutic effects and undesirable effects. Emphasis on the classes of drugs currently used in medical practice.

Elemental Physiology - PSIO241 (4 hours)

Undergraduate | Spring, Summer

For undergraduate students in para- medical sciences and nursing students on regional campuses. Systematic presentation of basic concepts.

Mechanisms of Body Function - PSIO441 (4 hours)

Undergraduate | Fall

A systematic examination of the homestatic functions of the human body with emphasis on the physicochemical mechanisms involved. Pathophysiology and clinical correlations are introduced in relation to normal physiology.

Fundamentals of Physiology - PSIO743 (4 hours)

Professional (Dental) or Graduate

For dental students and HSC graduate students. Analysis of facts and concepts relating to cellular processes, organ systems, and their control.

Neurophysiology - PSIO746 (1-4 hours)

Graduate | Spring

Properties of excitable tissues (nerve and muscle), synaptic transmission, reflexes and central nervous system function, and behavior

Graduate Physiology/Pharmacology 1 - PSIO750 (5 hours)

Graduate | Fall

Survey at a quantitative level of basic concepts and experimental approaches to cellular, endocrine, and neural mechanisms controlling physiological processes and the pharmacological manipulation of these processes.

Graduate Physiology/Pharmacology 2 - PSIO751 (5 hours)

Graduate | Spring

Survey at a quantitative level of basic concepts and experimental approaches to the physiology and pharmacology of cardiovascular, renal, pulmonary, and gastronintestinal function, including the mechanisms controlling these systems and their pharmacological manipulation.

Medical Physiology Online - PSIO760 (6 hours)

Professional (Medical) | Summer

Spring semester online course which uses a systems approach to reinforce physiological principals and prepare students to successfully complete the first-year medical school curriculum.

Teaching Practicum - PSIO790 (1-3 hours)

Graduate | Spring, Summer, Fall

Supervised practice in college teaching of physiology. Note: This course is intended to insure that graduate assistants are adequately prepared and supervised when they are given college teaching responsibility. It will also present a mechanism for students not on assistantships to gain teaching experience. (Grading will be S/U.)

Summer Medical Physiology - PSIO801 (7 hours)

Professional (Medical) | Summer

Online course covering physiological principals of cellular, organ, and organ systems as they apply to the maintenance of homeostasis. This course is directed at first-year medical students who require remediation and is comprehensive of the physiology lectures from CCMD 730: Human Function. Successful completion of the course requires a passing percentage on the final exam: the physiology shelf exam.
