Wow that is very intresting. I have a quick question for you. I was wondering if my gpa is about 3.0 before pharmacology wat are my chances of getting in for a male ( i heard it was easier for males to get in). And if i found the TEAS hard how hard will i find pharmamcology?
I'm pretty sure it's the same entrance for male vs female. It depends on how qualified you are for the program.
If you found the TEAS challenging than you will find Pharmacology pretty difficult.
Think about everything you need to know.. Prototype drugs and their generics, the class they belong in, how the class and the prototype act on the body, differences in generics, uses of the drugs (which a lot of them have different uses), contraindications, food and drug interactions, pathophysiology of the disease they are treating, patient teaching, etc..
Every test covers about 20-30 chapters (we covered about 60/72 chapters). Which contains about 10+ drugs per chapter. Just so you have an idea..
It's a lot of info in a short time.
Also, I heard they are adding Pathophysiology and using a score chart system for entrance. Not too sure about all that, but I know there has been talk about changing the entrance criteria.
I suggest attending the ER meeting for more accurate info on all that
Hope this helps
