MD-PHARAMACOLOGY

The purpose of PG education is to create specialists who would provide high quality health care and advance the cause of science through research & training.

(Revised with effect from 2019-2020 onwards)

Pharmacology consists of both the experimental (basic) and clinical sciences. Experimental pharmacology is essential to understanding of drug action in diseases as well as for the pharmaceutical industry for drug discovery and development. Clinical pharmacology is essential for prescribing practice in medicine, adverse drug reactions, clinical trial and pharmacovigilance.

The job prospects for a medical pharmacologist are in academics, pharmaceutical industry/clinical research organization, government research institutions, in regulatory bodies and as scientific writer or science manager. Accordingly, a post graduate (MD) student in Pharmacology should be competent to meet the job requirements at all these places.

The applied nature of the discipline, the move towards integrated course structures, the widening of discipline boundaries and increasing number of students seeking post graduation degree raise issues concerning maintaining and improving competency as along with maintenance of academic standards. These issues also necessitate integration with other biomedical and clinical disciplines. A pragmatic approach to postgraduate pharmacology teaching in India is an important step towards addressing the aforesaid challenges and facilitating a fresh curriculum design.

The purpose of this document is to provide teachers and learners illustrative guidelines to achieve defined outcomes through learning and assessment. This document was prepared by various subject-content specialists. The Reconciliation Board of the Academic Committee has attempted to render uniformity without compromise to purpose and content of the document. Compromise in purity of syntax has been made in order to preserve the purpose and content. This has necessitated retention of “domains of learning” under the heading “competencies”.

PO1: Board understanding of the principles of Pharmacology necessary in the practice of the subject in the community.
PO2: Competence in handling drugs in patient care with practical knowledge of dealing with molecules and its interactions.
PO3: Ability to critically appraise published literature, interpret data and to broaden his/her knowledge by keeping abreast with modern developments in pharmacology.
PO4: Ability to carry out research activities at par with the need of the community, by inventing a new molecule or studying the pleiotropic effect of existing molecules.

PSO1: Competency to use essential medicines in the daily practice of the medical graduate.
PSO2: Competency to select drugs for common disease conditions based on objective criteria, individualise the selected drug for a particular patient and write a correct prescription.
PSO3: Competency to respond effectively to pharmaceutical promotion and the ability to use various independent sources of medicine information in the process of prescribing and providing treatment.
PSO4: Competency to use drugs, especially antimicrobials rationally.
PSO5: Competency to analyse prescribing in primary health facilities using WHO prescribing indicators and be able to use the same for self-analysis and improvement of own prescribing behaviour.
PSO6: Competency to communicate drug and non-drug information about common diseases with a simulated patient.
PSO7: Competency to report adverse drug reactions to the pharmacovigilance centre.
PSO8: Competency to diagnose and manage overdosage.
