Course Description

Learners will study the theoretical, mathematical, and functionally dependent physiologic relationships that comprise the quantitative basis for determining population and patient-specific drug dosage regimens. Learners will focus on the rate, time course, and extent of drug absorption, distribution, and elimination. They will utilize data of drug plasma concentrations in order to calculate and monitor safe and effective drug dosing regimens. Learners will practice fundamental pharmacokinetics concepts by calculating population and patient-specific dosage regimen of selected drugs used in various disease states.
