Pharmacology is a science that is basic not only to medicine but also to pharmacy, nursing and dentistry medicine. It investigates the actions of drugs and chemicals in biological systems, ranging from the effects of chemical agents upon subcellular mechanisms to potential hazards of drug therapy for major diseases. Students should master the pharmacological action, mechanism, clinical application and adverse action of the drugs, which may provide elementary theory and knowledge for clinical diagnosis and preventing disease. Meanwhile, Pharmacology is also a practical subject, students not only should master the basic operational skills and theory by the experimental teaching, but also the designing thinking and procedure. Only so can students establish a satisfactory foundation to pursue technical and professional careers in medicine or other branches of health care and life sciences.

On the digital course cloud platform, pharmacology teaching uses online, interactive and other forms to set relevant knowledge points, combined with a series of clinical cases, in-depth development of autonomous and heuristic teaching modes, and guide students to change from passive acceptance of knowledge to autonomous learning and organization of questions and solve the problem, so as to achieve the teaching goal of mastering professional knowledge of pharmacology and having clinical practice medication ability, and essentially promote the improvement of students' theoretical knowledge and practical ability.

The construction of the digital curriculum of "Pharmacology" aims to break the limitations of time and space, change the traditional teacher-centered, teaching material as the center, excessive use of teaching, resulting in students' low learning initiative, cognition, and insufficient participation. Through rich teaching resources, advanced technical means and multi-dimensional teaching environment, help teachers to update teaching concepts, deepen course content, improve teaching methods, and innovate teaching design on the basis of inheriting traditional teaching models. Meanwhile promote students' independent learning and research learning, and  provide support for optimizing teaching management and promoting the reform of teaching mode, so as to comprehensively improve the efficiency and quality of curriculum teaching.

This digital course of "Pharmacology" includes general introduction, pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, efferent nervous system drugs, central nervous system drugs, cardiovascular system drugs, various organ system drugs, antimicrobial drugs, antitumor drugs and other teaching chapters. Personalized teaching arrangements are made through rich teaching resources and teaching design such as teaching videos, teaching PPTs, exercises, cases and open discussions. Relying on the support of the digital course cloud platform, online teaching activities such as announcement, question answering and discussion are carried out, and the course implementation and process teaching evaluation are completed through score evaluation and teaching file management.
