Institute of Emerging Health Professions - Cannabinoid Pharmacology is organized by Thomas Jefferson University (TJU) and will be held from Sep 04, 2018 - Sep 04, 2020.

The graduate certificate in Cannabinoid Pharmacology is designed to teach learners the mechanisms of drug action and aspects of pharmacokinetics as it relates to cannabis.

The legal cannabis industry is projected to be one of the fastest growing sectors of the US economy over the next decade. There are, however, few educational programs that prepare scientists, researchers, and clinicians to join this burgeoning field. This first-of-its-kind graduate certificate in Cannabinoid Pharmacology is now available for interested students with a suitable background in chemistry, biochemistry, pharmacology, toxicology, or physiology.

Upon completion of the Certificate in Cannabinoid Pharmacology program, students should be able to:
• Discuss the mechanisms of drug action (pharmacodynamics)
• Explain central nervous system neurotransmission
• Describe aspects of pharmacokinetics (administration, distribution, metabolism, excretion)
• Discuss the pharmacology of stimulants, depressants, cannabinoids, hallucinogens, antipsychotics
• Summarize current knowledge of drug abuse disorders and addiction
• Describe the historical use of cannabis
