Interactive Clinical Pharmacology

Given below is the link of an awesome site, having a number of simulations which helps in a clear understanding of the concepts of general pharmacology and its clinical implications in an interesting and interactive manner - a perfect tool for teaching general pharmacology to undergraduate students. Please visit it and give your comments.
Developed in the Department of Clinical Pharmacology, Christchurch Hospital / School of Medicine, New Zealand
The site has been designed to increase understanding of important and sometimes difficult concepts and principles in Clinical Pharmacology.

Intended Users
The site is for any student or practitioner requiring Clinical Pharmacology knowledge, e.g. undergraduate and post-graduate students in medicine, pharmacy and pharmacology. A basic understanding of physiology and pharmacology is assumed.
 Much of the material in the site is based on a companion book which can be used with this site: Instant Clinical Pharmacology by Evan J Begg, Blackwell Publishing 2003, ISBN 1-4051-0275-6.
