A flipped-classroom tool, Pharmacology World is an ideal tool for the transition to distance education due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Pharmacology World provides students with a robust video library covering all aspects of Pharmacology. With unlimited online access, this is a great resource for anyone learning Pharmacology: medical, dentistry, pharmacy, physician assistant, nursing programs and more.
And now, Pharmacology World has recently been updated to include a new 30-minute video specific to COVID-19. Any subscriber to Pharmacology World can now view this video under “Special Topics” in the table of contents. In this video, creator Dr. Michael Lee investigates drugs, vaccines and other therapies under investigation for the treatment of COVID-19.
Dr. Michael Lee has spent the last 18-years teaching every area of pharmacology to hundreds and hundreds of students including medical, pharmacy, undergraduate, graduate, dental, and optometry students at both large public universities and small private colleges.
Key Features of how Pharmacology World can support your virtual learning classroom:
- Help your students master the key concepts of pharmacology
- Covers all major drug classes and include: mechanism of action, key pharmacokinetics, major therapeutic uses, and common and serious adverse effects
- Incorporates relevant physiology, pathophysiology and biochemistry
- Can be used to fill the void in curriculums lacking pharmacology
- Includes preparation for course exams and national licensing exams
“At Dell Medical School we use a flipped-classroom model to teach our students the basic sciences during their first-year of medical school. As such, we relay on quality, high-yield, pre-class learning resources for students to study from before coming to class, where we typically have an exercise that applies this knowledge. In the case of pharmacology, it is woven throughout the curriculum like a longitudinal thread, often presented in small packets together with normal physiology or with pathology. Therefore, I use the Pharmacology World videos as a pre-class resource (like a video textbook) for students to gain a quick familiarity with the material prior to the case or application exercise in class the following day. As we move through the curriculum and revisit more advanced aspects of drug classes, the students go back into the Pharmacology World ‘video library’ and re-watch the videos, thereby strengthening their retention of the information.”
