Course contents:
In pharmacology and toxicology we build on knowledge from physiology and biochemistry to teach about drugs and toxins. The course includes lectures, groupwork and journal clubs. We base the lectures on the human pharamcology book Rang, Ritter, Flower and Henderson: 'Rang&Dale's Pharmacology' and on 'Veterinary Pharmacology & Therapeutics' among others. Rang & Dale is very good on general subject, and has very useful illustrations, but does not cover veterinary medicine. From the book 'Veterinary Pharmacology & Therapeutics' we share specific chapters in pdf format.  Compendia, scientific papers and other resources will also be made accessible.

Recommended prerequisites:
The exam is a combination of an MC-test and an oral exam and will take place during the last week of the course (the last three days). The MC-test will last for 2,5 hours and be graded from A-F. The MC-test includes pharmacology, toxicology and food-toxicology. It will make up 30% of the final course grade. The oral exam is carried out after the MC-test and will be graded from A-F. It includes only pharmacology and toxicology and is 70% of the final course grade. 
Three external sensors take part in the evaluation at the oral exam.
