Pharmacology Standards for Teaching

Pharmacology standards for teaching ASCEPT July 2014

The aim of these standards is to outline the essential basic and clinical pharmacology knowledge, skills and attitudes that all medical graduates require to be fit to prescribe safely and effectively by graduation. In medical training, there should be an attempt to move from ‘teaching about drugs’ to a more student-centered approach of ‘learning about rational therapeutic intervention in individual patients’.
