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 program, 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.
Delay, in 1959, defined psychotropic pharmaceuticals as "chemical substances of natural or synthetic origin, which possess a psychological tropism, i.e., they are capable of modifying mental activity without prejudging the type of modification". Anglo-Saxon authors define psychotropic pharmaceuticals as "chemical substances that modify sensations, mood, consciousness and other psychological and behavioral functions".
This program covers all the current pharmacological knowledge along with the whole universe of expertise that psychologists need to be able to develop their role as psychotherapists in interaction and total coordination with doctors in order to, from there, improve the patient's treatment.
