Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Although there exist some significant differences in the content and in the teaching of pharmacology in schools, there is a common need which can be readily identified. If the phamacologist is to be effective and efficient in his teaching functions, he must communicate with those who provide prerequisite instruction and with the clinical faculty who extrapolates the student's background into therapeutics and toxicology. Cooperative preparation of behavioral objectives is suggested as an integrating mechanism which can improve instruction, support efficient curriculum management, and promote interdisciplinary rapport.
