The major focus of this course will be a detailed coverage of the pathophysiology, pharmacology, toxicology, and therapeutics of CNS disorders that require pharmacotherapy. Students will learn to blend their factual knowledge of the basic sciences and apply this knowledge to drug treatment in disparate patients. On-site workshops will be provided at various times during the semester. During the semester students will submit six SOAP notes covering patients with both somatic and CNS related disorders. Synchronous video chats will be employed to relate the pharmacotherapy of somatic disorders with treatment of CNS disorders. A research paper covering the current and future pharmacotherapy of a CNS related disease state selected by the student and approved by the Course Coordinator. The course will culminate with each student presenting their research paper
