Division of Pharmaceutical Sciences

The Division provides the fundamental scientific basis upon which the practice of pharmacy depends.  The knowledge imparted to the student covers a broad range of topics. Course offerings first familiarize the student with the body and the interrelationships of its functions. Additional courses that build upon this foundation are concerned with health and disease states; physical and chemical aspects of compounds; medicinal chemistry; mechanisms, uses and interactions of drugs; pharmaceutical calculations; drug delivery systems; in vitro and in vivo processes affecting drug therapy; pharmaceutical analysis; biopharmaceutics and pharmacokinetics; adverse drug reactions; and individualization of drug therapy.  The responsibility of this division is to provide the student with a thorough knowledge of pharmaceuticals, both prescription and nonprescription, from the time they are developed to the time they are dispensed.  By acquiring the fundamental background in pharmaceutical sciences, the student will be prepared to effectively deliver pharmaceutical care to patients.
