Department of Pharmacology has been updated with well-equipped infrastructure and is engaged in the teaching programme of MBBS, B.Sc. (Hons) Nursing. It has also started its Post graduate course in Pharmacology from Jan-2019 session.
Under the pharmacovigilance program of India (PVPI), Adverse Drug Reaction (ADR) monitoring centre is functional at department of pharmacology, AIIMS Patna. The Adverse Drug Reaction Monitoring Centre forwards the adverse drug reaction (ADR) data to national Adverse Drug Reaction Monitoring centre.
To cater 'patient care needs' a Therapeutic Drug Monitoring Lab (TDM) is being established and in process of standardization. For the 'animal research needs' of the institute, a Central Animal House is also being established. The department envisages starting PhD and super specialty courses DM (Clinical Pharmacology). The department is also engaged in constantly upgrading education, research and patient care capacities.
Computer-based practical classes are being carried out. We have completely phased out animal experimentation at the UG level and are actively teaching experimental pharmacology using virtual simulation software Ex-Pharm Pro and established Computer Assisted Lab (CAL). The department has also phased out the conventional pharmacy practical exercises with Clinical pharmacy.
Problem based learning, drug interactions, fixed dose combinations and causality assessment of adverse drug reactions, prescription audit and analysis training have become a part of the curriculum of pharmacology practical classes.
