Disciplines taught at the department: "Pharmacology" for students of the 3rd year of all medical faculties, 2 and 3 courses of the dental faculty; "Pharmacology and medical prescription" for undergraduate students of the 1st year in the specialty "Medical diagnosis and treatment technology"; "Medical and pharmaceutical commodity" for undergraduate students and masters in the specialty "Medical nursing".

The staff of the department are co-authors of the national textbook "Pharmacology". At the department a manual for pharmacology for students studying in English (2005, 2006) was developed. In 2018, the head of department prof. Yermolenko T.I. together with the staff of the department a manual "Medical and pharmaceutical commodity" have created.

Maked a computer class and installed programs for testing students to prepare for the licensed exam "KROK-1". According to their results, the department annually takes one of the first places among the theoretical departments of the university.


Nephroprotective properties of drugs of specific and nonspecific action in kidney pathology. Research of ways of pharmacological correction of unfavorable consequences of stress. Innovative approaches to the creation of combined medications for the treatment of broncho-pulmonary pathology in children of different age groups at the preclinical stage. Pharmacological study of potential medicinal products containing biologically active substances of natural origin.


According to the results of scientific research, 1 doctoral and 7 candidate's theses have been defended; the contribution of the department is about 500 publications, of which 6 monographs, more than 80 articles (9 from which are published in the journals of the SCOPUS base), 240 abstracts, 21 patents, 10 innovations included in the state register, 8 leaflets, more than 100 reports and participation in 85 scientific forums. Students take active part in the scientific work of the department, take part in scientific events of different levels.


The department was created in 1805 as part of the medical faculty of the Kharkov Imperial University. It was formed earlier than other pharmacological schools in Ukraine and took place in its development of 3 stages.

The first stage (1837-1894) is characterized by the formation and formation of a scientific pharmacological school, the founder of which was Professor Gordeenko Yegor Stepanovich. His followers became prof. GS Rindovsky, prof. I.M. Stankevich, prof. M.L. Zaleski, prof. D.K. Rodzaevsky At this time, the composition and pharmacological activity of mineral waters, properties of substances of plant origin, poisoning by drugs were investigated.

The second stage (1895-1929 biennium) is marked by the expansion of the objects of pharmacological study of new medicinal plants and their active substances, the creation of the foundations of pathological pharmacology, the use of experimental models of diseases. Proceedings prof. Popova S.O., prof. Postoєva Ya.Ya. created the basis and ensured the development of this scientific direction.

The third stage (1930 - to this day) is connected with academic activities of acad. Cherkes Alexander Ilyich - a world-renowned founder of new scientific disciplines in pharmacology and toxicology - biochemical pharmacology and toxicology, pathological pharmacology. His followers were prof. M.S. Kharchenko, prof. L.T. Kirichek, prof. T.V. Zvyagintseva, prof. T.I. Yermolenko сontinued  pharmacological study of  local plant raw materials, toxicology of liquid metals, surfactants and some pesticides; the scientific direction is determined in the study of medical correction of the adverse effects of stress and  mechanisms of local radiation damage and their therapy. The newest scientific developments of the department are directed on pharmacological study of the properties of potential drugs containing biologically active substances of natural origin, which will justify their widespread use in the health care system.
