Introduction

Pharmacology is a multidisciplinary field that explores many aspects of drug discovery, development, and drug safety. It blends knowledge from multiple scientific disciplines including chemistry, biochemistry, molecular biology, and physiology, providing a significant positive impact on human health. It is the foundation of rational therapeutics. Medical pharmacology integrates basic pharmacology, Clinical pharmacology, and pharmacotherapeutics. The subject is highly dynamic with concepts and priority drugs changing rapidly. The inception of the department of pharmacology began in 2021 and it was established in 2022 under the stewardship of Dr. Prabhakar Adake, Professor and Head of the department.

The department of pharmacology is committed to providing quality education to medical students and inspiring them to participate in research activities. It has well-trained faculties with extensive experience in both academics and research.

The department features spacious teaching and research labs, audio-visual demonstration rooms, a modern academic library, and a well-equipped museum showcasing several pharmacological domains. The department is also proud of its state-of-the-art Computer Assisted Learning (CAL) lab, which offers students virtual exposure to various animal experiments in experimental pharmacology. In addition, the department also has a dedicated room for pharmacovigilance activities.

The objectives of the department are to

  • To Implement Competency-Based Medical Education (CBME) to provide high-quality medical education with the goal to create an “Indian Medical Graduate” (IMG) possessing requisite knowledge, skills, attitudes, values, and responsiveness, so that she or he may function appropriately and effectively as a physician of first contact of the community while being globally relevant.
  • To enable medical undergraduates to demonstrate an ability to prescribe and safely administer appropriate therapies including nutritional interventions, pharmacotherapy, and interventions based on the principles of rational drug therapy, scientific validity, evidence, and cost.
  • To motivate faculty members as well as students in various research activities and provide a platform for advanced research activities and innovations.

Facilities

Clinical Pharmacology lab

A simulation is a popular approach in medical education. When it is perceived as a patient, a manikin can give students a realistic experience of what it means to behave like doctors. Consequently, this realism lets students practice and acquires relational, communicative, and collaborative skills. To provide the students with the best of resources, the research lab is equipped with a good number of manikins, which can be used to practice various skills like intravascular, intramuscular, subcutaneous, intradermal injections; intravenous cannulation; tracheal intubation; Cardio-pulmonary resuscitation (CPR), etc.

Computer Assisted Learning (CAL) lab

To keep up with the needs of Competency-Based Medical Education, the department has a CAL lab with 25 computers running the latest software and high-speed internet access. The updated simulation software gives students a hands-on experience with various pharmacological experiments, which enables them to grasp the underlying pharmacological concepts and principles.

Pharmacology Research lab

The research lab is equipped with various instruments like Actophotometer, Analgesiometer, Rotarod apparatus, Digital plethysmograph, Metabolic cage, Critical fusion apparatus, Digital PD meter, Organ bath apparatus, etc. for carrying out research activities.

Museum

A well-illuminated and ventilated pharmacology museum is located on the first floor of the “A” block of JGMM Medical College. The museum has numerous charts depicting the contributions of famous pharmacologists, the drugs acting on various body systems, the mechanism of actions of drugs and medicinal plants. Interesting models illustrating important pharmacological concepts are also on display. Furthermore, over a hundred drug samples and dosage forms are organized systemically.

Demonstration room

The department has a fully furnished demonstration room with audio-visual aids for teaching purposes.

Pharmacovigilance Committee

The Pharmacovigilance Committee of JGMM Medical College was formed in 2022 under the chairmanship of Dr. M G Hiremath, Principal of our college. The committee has faculties from various disciplines and meets frequently to discuss the implementation of the Pharmacovigilance Program of India (PvPI) in the hospitals attached to JGMM Medical College. The department of Pharmacology aimed to have our own Adverse Drug Reaction Monitoring Centre (AMC) in the coming years.
