11 Miscellaneous: Pharmacoepidemiological studies Prescription monitoring ADR monitoring Drug utilization studies in OP and IP patients Development of standard treatment guidelines for one clinical condition Pharmacoeconomic analysis Methods PG students are encouraged to largely carry out self learning. They are expected to actively seek knowledge and skill on their own initiative. Sound knowledge of systemic pharmacology including pharmacodynamics and kinetics and therapeutics of post graduate level is to be acquired entirely by self study and by participating in various teaching activities of the department. The following organized learning experiences should be provided to the students: 1. Lectures, group discussions and seminars: These will be held once a week and will include the lecture delivered by faculty members of CPT department and other allied disciplines. Topics of common interest to PGs will be covered in the programme. (Appendix). PG seminars will be held once a week which will be presented by PG students. Time table for these programmes will be drawn every six months and each PG student should present minimum six seminars every year. 2. Journal clubs: Journal clubs will be held once a week and each student has to present and discuss at least six therapeutic problems in a year. Programme for this will be drawn six monthly. 3. Therapeutic problems discussion: This will be held once a week and each student has to present and discuss at least six therapeutic problems in a year. Programme for these will be drawn six monthly. 4. Practical exercises: Students are required to carry out the practical exercises once a week under the guidance of faculty member. The exercise will be discussed with the faculty member theoretically in detail before performing the same. Students will be required to carefully record all the observations and same has to be recorded on exercise note book. Students are required to discuss the findings and the interpretation of the results of each exercise with the faculty member and are required to take the signature of the faculty member in charge on the exercise note book. The suggested practical exercised to be carried out or observed by the student are listed in the Appendix. 5. Thesis or dissertation: Every PG student will be required to carry out the research work under the supervision of his guide in the field of Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics. The thesis work can be carried out by the student jointly with other departments and the faculty from other departments can be opted as co-guides. The topic of thesis and the proposal will be discussed by the student with all the faculty members and will require approval from the institutional review committee as the case may be. The acceptance of thesis will be a prerequisite for the candidate to be allowed to appear in the written and practical examination. Student is required to submit the Thesis for the review by the external examiners at least 6 months before the schedule date of the examination. 6. Departmental clinical research work: The PG student will be involved in various clinical research works being undertaken in the department by the faculty members. Each student is required to participate at least in one research project every year. Teaching: The PG students are to participate in all aspects of teaching, specially practicals, demonstrations and tutorials. During their tenure, they will be working and under faculty members on rotation basis as per the allotment of the teaching schedule. The candidates should participate in the teaching programme for paramedical courses offered by the institute like nursing and physiotherapy.

12 Intradepartmental postings: Every PG student should be posted by rotation to the different sections / laboratories of the Clinical Pharmacology department like analytical lab, pharmacodynamic lab, pharmacokinetics and TDM (Therapeutic Drug Monitoring) labs, OP follow up clinic, ADR monitoring cell and drug information unit. A record of the observations made and lessons learnt should be maintained by the students. Posting in allied disciplines: During first six months of the course, the student will be posted and will go through a general orientation course in different departments of medical specialties and hospital attached laboratories. The schedule for these posting should be drawn every year in consultation with these departments. A log book should be maintained by the PG student of the work done during these postings and duly certified by the heads of the respective departments. Ward rounds: In consultation with major clinical departments arrangement will be made that the PG students of clinical pharmacology attend the ward rounds to get an exposure to the trends in the use of drugs, prescribing practices, adverse drug reactions, drug interactions etc. The student will be required to have a training in emergency and casualty medicine department to have a training in management of medical emergencies like respiratory failure, anaphylactic shock etc, including cardiopulmonary resuscitation procedures. A log book of the ward rounds attended and important observations made should be maintained by the PG. Conferences: The PG students should be encouraged to attend national/ regional conferences. Attendance at a minimum one conference during the 3 year course is mandatory. Credits should be given for attending more conferences and making poster/ oral presentations at these conferences. Workshops / updates: Workshops and updates on various aspects of pharmacology, clinical pharmacology, and therapeutics including experimental and clinical trial methodologies should be organized by different departments by rotation on national / regional basis. Intensive and hands on training should be provided to the PG students in these workshops/ updates. Visit of PGs to a pharmaceutical manufacturing /R&D facility and office of Drug Regulatory Authorities should be organized. SECTION VI Thesis/dissertation: the thesis /dissertation to be sent to two external examiners at least 6 months prior to commencement of the final DM examination. The examiners will submit their report to the University and recommend its acceptance/ modification/ rejection. The specific comments of the examiners should be communicated to the candidate and the guide. In case modifications are suggested these should be carried out and thesis resubmitted. In case of rejection of the thesis, the entire work, preferably on a new topic, has to be done by the candidate and thesis submitted to the University for processing a fresh. When the thesis has been accepted the candidate will be allowed to appear in the examination. The candidate will make a brief presentation about his thesis before the examiners and answer any questions asked by them. Marks will be awarded by the examiners on the basis of the quality of the thesis as well as the presentation made by the candidate. Log book: Credits are to be awarded on the log book of the student in which he /she records the details of teaching assignments, work done during posting in various labs / sections of the department as well as posting to other basic sciences/ clinical departments, ward rounds etc.

13 Leave: 30 Earned leaves in 1 st year 36 Earned leaves in 2 nd year 36 Earned leaves in 3 rd year In addition the candidate can avail 6 casual leaves per semester. Attendance Since it is a resident in house work as you learn programme, it is desirable that candidates should have 100% attendance to enable this objective to be achieved. However a minimum of at least 80% attendance would be required before they are allowed to appear for the examination.
