Contemporary Approaches For Teaching Medicinal Chemistry
As the profession of pharmacy has transitioned from a chemistry-centered profession to a patient-centered profession, the role of medicinal chemistry in the curriculum has evolved. There is decreased emphasis on memorization of chemical structures, and priority placed on relating these structures to ADME, physical properties, and pharmacodynamics. Simultaneously, the delivery of this content has shifted from traditional lecture format to other styles. Here we discuss some new approaches to teaching medicinal chemistry.
