PHRM 907 Drug Induced Disorders

This class will provide students with a framework for understanding drug induced disorders encountered in clinical practice.  The FDA process for adverse drug event reporting and safety measures will be discussed to build a foundation for understanding pre- and post-marketing surveillance.  Central mechanisms of action for adverse drug events will then be discussed and system models of drug-induced disorders will be illustrated.  With this knowledge in hand, students will develop a final project to present on the mechanism, diagnosis, management, and prevention of a specific drug-induced disorder.  The final project will give students the opportunity to improve their research skills by evaluating primary literature while preparing for their projects.  Presentation of the final project to class will also enable students to refine their public speaking skills.
