Course “An introduction to Veterinary Pharmacology” has been pre-approved by RAPS as eligible for up to 10 credits towards a participant’s RAC recertification upon full completion.

We need the below information to serve you better

Course Description:

This course is an introduction to Veterinary Pharmacology. It will provide background, context and understanding regarding Absorption, Distribution, Metabolism and Excretion (ADME). In addition, there will be a limited introduction into comparative physiology in the major veterinary species with each section. Finally, an introduction into Pharmacokinetics and the terminology used in this area will also be provided. This seminar will provide attendees with an understanding of Veterinary Pharmacology and ADME topics in the context of veterinary drug development.

Learning Objectives:

Upon completing this course on veterinary medicine regulations participants will have learned:

  • To gain a general understanding of all aspects of the basic science of Veterinary ADME/Pharmacokinetics.
  • To learn the vocabulary related to Veterinary ADME/Pharmacokinetics.
  • To understand the interactions of chemical compounds and living systems.
  • To appreciate how drug actions and interactions relate to physiological principles. Pharmacology is simply: PHYSIOLOGY OR PATHO-PHYSIOLOGY BEING INFLUENCED BY AN EXOGENOUS COMPOUND(S).

Who will Benefit:

This course is designed for people tasked with developing and maintaining an animal health company’s product portfolio and who may also be involved with a company’s regulatory strategies. This includes individuals responsible for overseeing regulatory affairs, developing veterinary drug products, evaluating new technologies or applications, and those tasked with ensuring corporate compliance. Among others, this includes:
