Description

This Postgraduate Certificate will help you develop all the current expertise in pharmacological science along with the whole universe of knowledge you will need" 

21st century psychologists must be familiar with all the tools aimed at the biopsychosocial health of patients suffering from psychological disorders. Pharmaceuticals are one of these tools, and for this reason, psychologists must have a thorough knowledge of how they work in order to be able to adhere to their specialty, such as psychotherapy or group intervention.

Pharmacology studies the properties and actions that medication produces in organisms, making it a biological science. Any chemical substance that interacts in the living organism is called a pharmaceutical drug. In a more restricted sense, and as it will be considered in this Postgraduate Certificate, a drug is any chemical substance used to prevent the appearance of an undesirable physiological process, or in the treatment, cure, prevention or diagnosis of a disease. 
In the context of Psychologists' qualifications in Pharmacology, this program offers a unique opportunity to achieve the highest level of expertise in clinical practice with medicated patients. Pharmacology offers the possibility of knowing pharmacological drug actions and properties in such a way that they can be prescribed and applied to patients with rigor, with maximum safety, and in optimal conditions. The levels of knowledge may vary depending on the skills and requirements of each person and each profession related to pharmacological therapeutics. 

Undoubtedly, the primary objective of Pharmacology is to benefit the patient, and to do so as rationally and strictly as it is usually done to reach the correct diagnosis. Psychologists can help with their expertise in the diagnosis and prescription of the most appropriate medication for each patient. In the last forty years, the development of chemistry, physiology and biochemistry, and analytical technology has made it possible to isolate highly active products from natural sources and, above all, design and synthesize new compounds, analyze their actions and effects at all possible levels of organization of the living substance, and learn about the processes that follow their passage through the organism.

This has led to an explosion in the production of therapeutically active pharmaceutical products, an accumulation of information that is not always easy to assimilate, and, above all, the possibility of rigorous, objective and individualized application to the characteristics of each patient.
