Changes of Theoretical and Experimental Pharmacology Teaching

In 21st century, teaching of pharmacology faces new challenges, which including the direct consequence of the success of drug discovery with endless increase of scientific information. It is very important to convey the importance of “past-modern” pharmacological knowledge to our students.

Therefore, changes have to be made to fit the new knowledge, new attitudes and new tools. Here, we report some innovative changes of theoretical and experimental pharmacology teaching during last few years in our university.

Xi’an Jiaotong University was established in year 1896. It has developed into a university that has the feature of science and engineering and covers 9 subjects such as science, engineering, medicine, economics, management, art and law.

It has become an important base that is the integration of talents training, scientific research and social services and propels the social development.

School of Medicine

Xi'an Jiao Tong University was formed by the combination of Xi'an Jiao Tong University, Shaanxi Finance and Economics College and Xi’an Medical University (founded in 1937) in April 2000.

The School of Medicine has more than 400 teachers and faculty including 110 professors and associate professors. School of medicine also consisted of three teaching Hospitals, including more than 3000 doctors and nurses.

With advanced facilities and instruments, the School of Medicine has a great strength in scientific research.

The newly set up medical experimentation center, medical information center and the animal experimentation center guarantee a high standard and high quality of work for scientific research.

Changes of Theoretical Pharmacology Teaching

Pharmacology is a discipline as a bridge, not only to connect pharmacy with medicine, but also to link foundational medicine to clinical medicine. In the same time, we tried to harmonize the new sciences with the “old’ pharmacology. Drugs, regardless of their origin time, should be understood how they work and how to be used.

We emphasize the integration of the cross among subjects and the development of the subject.

Using new teaching skills: To use multi-media computer-assisted instruction.

More and more multi-media computer-assisted instructions (MCAI ) are applying in our teaching. We have received good result through this skill which fully utilizes such forms as color, sound, cartoon, figure, etc., to express the content as a intuitionist, novel, vivid way.

Using new teaching skills: To adopt heuristic teaching to excite students’ learning interest. Considering pharmacology teaching involving a wide range of knowledge, we usually introduce some relevant background knowledge to excite students' interest at first, and then teach the usage of medicine.

Pharmacology has already been listed in the bilingual teaching category in our school. We pay attention to teachers’ English training, especially to improve their oral English.

We also study and discuss pharmacology teaching methods designedly and purposefully.

1988-2000680 students Choose functional

experimental class; design 596 experiments

and finished 176.

2001-20051300 students Choose functional

experimental class; design 623 experiments

and finished 155.

What I had remembered most during my 5

years studies in medical school was functional

experimental class.

I really enjoyed the experimental design.

summary
Summary

After innovative changes of theoretical and experimental pharmacology teaching during last few years in our university, more and more students are interested in the course.

Students believe that learning functional experiment course facilitates them to the study of other relevant theoretical courses, and improves their abilities of operating by hands and using knowledge comprehensively, and fosters their innovative consciousness and scientific thinking ability.
