At the end of the teaching activity, the student must have acquired chemistry knowledge of the classes of drugs treated in the program and the most important concepts in medicinal chemistry. In particular, the student should be able to:
- Understand the chemical characteristics of the drugs included in the therapeutic classes treated in the program, their uses, the biological activity and toxicity, the relationship between the chemical structure and biological activity, the mechanism of action, the chemical-physical and metabolic aspects (Knowledge and understanding).
- Be able to interpret the mechanism of action, the pharmacological profile of drugs and metabolic and toxicological characteristics; apply the acquired knowledge to the discussion of the structure of the activity; identify the structural characteristics of drugs that are important for their action; be able to use a correct nomenclature according to international rules (Ability to apply knowledge and understanding).
- Expose concepts in a clear and straightforward way and through a formally correct and proper language, be able to interact with people with scientific training in different areas. (Communication Skills)
-Draw consequences on the use of drugs based on their structural, chemical and physicochemical properties (Making judgements).
