In small groups classes, attitudes and soft skills are also addressed.
Identify molecular targets and pathways that can be manipulated by drugs
. Identify drugs that are available
. Justify the main pharmacodinamic and pharmacokinetics principles
. Apply the pharmacodinamic and pharmacokinetics principles to specific drugs/situations
. Integrate the principles of pharmacology in the process of drug evaluation (efficacy, safety and quality)
. Apply the principles of drug evaluation to specific situations: generics and biosimilars

General Pharmacology is a one semester course that has a workload of 4 ECTS with 3 contact hours /week : 2h of lectures and 1h of formative evaluation classes in small groups (n<16).
Teaching language is Portuguese but the slides content and bibliography are in English
Final evaluation includes the distributed evaluation obtained in small groups teaching (30%); a written multiple choice test (70%) in Portuguese (compulsory) and an oral (optional) exam. A minimal grade of 10/20 in both exams is needed to get approval, except for foreign students where no minimal scores in the written test are required.
