Pharmacology Courses


The Department offers a wide variety of courses including introductory courses in

pharmacology (PHC 7010) and toxicology (PHC 7410). Of particular interest is PHC 7650,

which is a group of highly focused, one-credit "mini-courses" that are taught by the

Pharmacology faculty. Graduate students from Pharmacology and other disciplines may enroll

in one or all (usually 3 to 4) of the offerings in a given semester. The content of these courses

changes from semester to semester and year to year. [B = biannual; F = Fall semester; W = Winter semester; T = every semester]
