Capsules: Practical Pharmacology for the Emergency Medicine Practitioner
Welcome to the Capsules Series! This series is a free, online e-curriculum of high-quality, current, and practical pharmacology knowledge for the EM practitioner. About once a month a new course block is released with lessons and brief quizzes to complete. All modules are written by two pharmacist team members and then peer-reviewed by a separate pharmacist and physician. The Capsules series’ primary focus is bringing EM pharmacology education to the bedside. Our expert team distills complex pharmacology principles into easy-to-apply concepts. It’s our version of what-you-need-to-know as an EM practitioner.
