Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This course is required to graduate and only one teacher teaches it but she is an outstanding teacher. She gives you a lot of material to help you succeed and understand the important concepts of this course.
We were not only tested on what we learned by exams but there were a lot of other opportunities to test our knowledge. For example, we had pharmacology quizzes related to the specific unit we were on, we had quizzes before most lectures so that we had some sort of idea of what we would be learning about that day(she gave us pre lecture material to study prior to class), and we also had in class case studies and clicker questions to help tie everything together.

Advice for students:
The best advice I can give is stay on top of the work. The material is not too challenging and can be easily understood but you have to take the time to understand it. Once you put in that time, everything will come together. In the medical field everything ties together, and people have a lot of co morbidities so you want to make sure you really understand the diseases. It also helps to understand the anatomy and physiology of the body because it will help you understand why things happen.
