Is one semester of pharmacology enough?

It has to be every medical school has one semester for pharm. Some schools may allow for a specialized longer track were you are given course work over a longer period but I have not seen it in the states and the thing about foreign schools is that they want to pattern their curriculum after the states.

Is one semester of pharmacology enough?Reason it is one course is that you are learning how drugs work, concentrations and then most common drugs and their usage - pretty much theory and the mechinisms by which they work where they know it. Drugs are also taught in bits with micro - pathology - physiology. Then you really get them in clinical science later.
