PRVM 811: Introduction to Pharmacoepidemiology (3)

Pharmacoepidemiology is the application of the principles of epidemiology to the study of medications and their effects of health. Evaluating a drug's effects commences when a chemical entity becomes a drug candidate, intensifies through clinical trials, and continues after products reach the market. These studies are critical for supporting the proper use of medications in terms of efficacy, effectiveness, and cost-effectiveness. This course provides a broad introduction to the principles of pharmacoepidemiology with a focus on applications in the medical literature. Prerequisite: PRVM 800. LEC
