No matter the healthcare profession, pharmacology is likely one of the most challenging courses you will ever take.  The Real Life Pharmacology podcast was born out of the idea that students and young healthcare professionals don’t get enough real world experience prior to going out on their own.  Pharmacology in college is often taught by professors who haven’t worked in the real world in decades.  In addition to helping you understand pharmacology and pass exams, the Real Life Pharmacology podcast will help you get a sense of what actually happens in “real life”.
