Integrated Pharmacotherapeutics I is divided into five modules: Introduction, Autonomics, Nephrology, Cardiovascular, and Endocrinology. The course first introduces concepts such as therapeutics, pharmacogenomics, clinical toxicology and examines special populations including pediatric and geriatric patients. It also introduces fundamental concepts in medicinal chemistry critical for understanding how drug structure affects drug action. The other four modules will be covered from physiological, medicinal chemistry, pharmacology, toxicology and therapeutics in an integrated way, having the overall objectives of understanding current pharmacotherapeutic approaches, and knowing the basic science underpinnings of those approaches, for management of disease conditions.
