Medical Pharmacology at a Glance presents the basics of medical pharmacology in bit-sized chapters, each of which corresponds approximately to a 60-minute lecture. Students who are new to pharmacology can start at the beginning and work through the text, while the figures provide a refresher on the mechanisms of drug action for those with a more thorough grounding of the key principles. Case studies and corresponding questions and answers allow the student to test their knowledge. This 7th edition is now also supported online by a full suite of interactive flashcards.
