PHA 6557-Clinical Toxicology 1
This course provides students with knowledge about the toxic effects of a number of important therapeutic drug classes as well as additional insight into a number of organ systems that have not been covered in General Toxicology. Specifically, the course will cover the cardiovascular principles and which important drug classes are commonly involved with toxic side effects that might present to healthcare professionals. A number of medications used for the treatment of neurological and psychiatric disorders is also commonly associated with a wide range of toxic effects that require immediate attention in a clinical setting. Also, inherently linked to toxicity is the use of antibiotics and chemotherapeutics which display a number of specific toxic effects.
