Prerequisites, PHRM 511 , PHRM 592 , PHRM 622 , PHRM 622L , PHRM 631 , PHRM 641 , doctor of pharmacy major. This course provides an overview of mechanistic toxicology and familiarizes students with principles of clinical toxicology and approaches to management of patients with acute overdoses and poisonings of select pharmaceuticals and toxins. In this course, we will discuss the most common cellular mechanisms of toxicity and provide a rationale for antidote selection. Recognition of toxidromes of commonly encountered overdoses and the development of patient-specific management plans, including antidote selection and supportive care measures, will be emphasized.
