The pharmacology is the science concerned with all aspects of the action of drugs and other chemicals on living systems. Its primary aim is the discovery of chemical mechanisms by which cellular and molecular functions are regulated for the purpose of understanding how existing drugs act and to develop new drugs for treatment and diagnosis of human diseases.
Department of Pharmacology is one of the enriched and dynamic preclinical department situated at the eastern side of the main building of Rajshahi Medical College. It consists of lecture gallery, tutorial class rooms, and experimental and clinical Pharm- acology research laboratories.
This department strives to train undergraduate and post graduate (M. Phil) students in Pharmacology. In 2002 the post graduate M. Phil course has started under the University of Rajshahi and now it is running under BSMMU. The post graduate M.Phil students undertake and research projects in addition to their teaching work. With well- qualified and experienced teachers guiding them, students can look forward to an interesting
We believe that a good physician has to be a good pharmacologist too. We help our students to gain a thorough knowledge of medications, such as various routes of drug administration, mechanisms of action, pharmacokinetics, adverse drug reactions and dosage schedules.
Students understand the general principles of drug action and select to prescribe suitable drugs according to the need of the patient. They are guided to use rational drug combinations judiciously in the best interest of the patient. Students are made to appreciate the essential drug concepts and translate that in terms of drug needs for a given community.
