Preparation and
With the exception of nervous system, each lecture is independent, but a comprehensive understanding of the disease is required because in some cases, defects in each of the organs accumulate. To understand pharmacotherapy, it is necessary to understand the mechanism of disease, and it is necessary to understand the function of each organ under normal conditions. There is a lot to remember, but we hope you will make a steady effort.
