Biomedical Sciences Graduate Program

 

The Pharmacology Graduate Program has been integrated into the Biomedical Sciences Graduate Program at Temple University School of Medicine. This new interdisciplinary program provides students with the education, training, and skills that today's employers in academia, government and industry demand. All research faculty in the Department of Pharmacology participate in the training of graduate students in this new program.

 

With a curriculum featuring an interdisciplinary approach to education and research training, students learn how to perform as independent scientific investigators, exploring new pathways for learning and discovery.

 

Both the MS with thesis and PhD programs are scholarly endeavors requiring original research. The programs challenge students to think logically and creatively and to express themselves independently.

 

Students benefit from Temple's high faculty-to-student ratio. They receive outstanding mentoring from their advisors and faculty—all premier researchers with national and international reputations. Students are also given ample opportunity to explore options for independent study and research.

Dental Pharmacology

 

The Dental Pharmacology course is specifically designed to present basic drug information to second year dental students in preparation for national boards (part 2) and for the clinical practice of dentistry.  By the end of the course, students must be able to demonstrate knowledge of the basic principles of pharmacology and characteristics of specific drug classifications.  Basic principles include both pharmacodynamic and pharmacokinetic properties of drugs. Within each class of drugs, students should have an understanding of the mechanisms of drug action, pharmacokinetic properties, therapeutic effects and uses, adverse drug reactions and importance to dentistry. The course is presented in lecture format with interactive workshops based on clinical vignettes.

The course director is:

Gerald Sterling, PhD
