Docs don’t study much about drugs either when in med school

Teaching Doctors About Nutrition and Diet

Physicians are almost always consulted by the media about drug related issues. It is well known among “pharmacy” circles that the medical curriculum has been de-emphasizing subjects such as pharmacology and therapeutics – topics that deal with the safe and effective use of drugs -over the last several last decades. Imagine – they are the ones that get to write the prescriptions!

  1. Dear Dione,

    On my web site (lawandscience.com), read my article on Patient Drug Safety (click on Publications, then Drug and Food Law section). It includes a comparison of medical and pharmacy curricula at one institution in the US. Hope this helps.
