Collection of online pharmacology lectures, videos, animations, questions, and pharmacology news

Pharmamotion offers a collection of online lectures, videos, animations, questions, and pharmacology news intended to serve as a resource for the current and future physician.

This amazingly detailed resource is put together by Flavio Guzman, MD, working as teaching assistant at the Department of Pharmacology, University of Mendoza, Argentina. He also calls for others to contribute to online medical education resources.

The aim of this website is to gather educational resources targeted to health professionals that are freely available on the web, for a better understanding of pharmacology. These resources include:

  • Animations and videos that illustrate mechanism of action of drugs (some of them developed by me).
  • Definitions and concepts from reliable sources about the general principles of pharmacology.
  • Press releases and drug reviews from official agencies (FDA, EMEA, NHS, and many others).
