Chemistry for Pharmacy Lab
This course covers experiments on qualitative and quantitative aspects of chemistry as applied to medical and health
science, such as separation, identification, purification, and synthesis procedures.
Prerequisite: Pre/Co 1101116.
Human Biology
This course gives students the chance to learn basic concepts and applica-tions related to the human body. The
course includes the structure and function of the normal cell; tissues in general, their different types, mi-croscopic
characteristics, locations, distribution and functions in the human body and of the different organ system and their
respective roles and function in the organization of the body. The course is supported by multimedia and simulations
to enhance student self-learning. Prerequisite: None.
Pharmaceutics A
This course covers several topics including basic pharmaceutical calculations, acids/ bases and buffer solutions,
thermodynamics and heat capacity, phase equilibrium and the phase rule, solubility and distribution phenomena.
Factors affecting solubility and dissolution. Formulation of solutions as dosage forms. Prerequisite: None.
Pathophysiology I
Basics of physiology, anatomy, histology and biochemistry. Patho¬physiology of organ/ system. Synaptic transmission. Nervous system. Skeletal smooth and cardiac muscle. Circulation. Special senses. In addition to cells and
tissue function and integrative body function. Prerequisite: 1102110.
Calculus for Pharmacy
Methods of differentiation; first and second derivatives and their application to maxima and minima problems. Integration methods and their application to rate equations (zero and first order) and chemical kinetics. Half-life. Exponential
and power functions; plots using logarithmic scale graph papers. Triangular graph paper; plots and calculations.
Integration methods and the solution of simple ordinary differential equations. The principles of partial differentiation,
first and second derivatives, with an emphasis on application to thermodynamics and diffusion theory. Students will
gain and appreciation of the application of calculus to physical chemistry, pharmaceutics and formulation. Prerequisite: None.
Introduction to Pharmacy Practice
This course provides a background and introduction to the profession of pharmacy. It covers history of the medical
and pharmacy professions and their relationship over time. The course also covers general topics related to pharmacy including pharmaceutical and medical abbreviations used in practice, the prescription and its anatomy as well
as its legal requirements. The course also gives students a view of the pharmacist career options in the settings of
retail, hospital, industry, research and academia. This course will also offer some concepts of pharmaceutical calculations used in practice. Prerequisite: None.
Medicinal Chemistry IA
The course aims to provide students with advanced knowledge about different functional groups their properties,
synthesis, reactions and nomenclature. At this level they study: the reactions, spatial features of alkanes, cycloalkanes and their conformational changes and the free radical reaction mechanisms. The preparation and reactivity of
halo alkanes and the mechanisms of SN1, SN2, E1 and E2. The preparation and mechanisms of addition reactions
in alkenes and alkynes. The stereochemistry, chirality, and the 3D features of molecules. Reactions of alcohols and
ethers. The IR, and NMR-spectroscopy and their applications for structural determination. This course also includes
practical part that introduces students to Molecular modeling and stereochemistry, preparation of some organic
molecules that are used as drugs as well as undergoing functional groups identification. Tutorial classes alternating
the labs for applications to cover the theoretical parts of labs and for applications in some parts of the course. Prerequisite: 1101116, 1101117.
