There are no required textbooks.
There is not a required textbook for this particular unit. However, that does not mean you cannot purchase a text or should not use one. The key point for a textbook in this unit is that it will be a learning tool for yourself. For example, if you need to review pathophysiology or pharmacokinetics then you need to find a text that helps augment your learning in these areas (such as a generic medicine pharmacology text (see examples below). If you would like more detailed notes on classes of medications and to understand more clinical details, choose a text that focuses on applied concepts (such as RAPID Clinical Pharmacology by Batchelder et al or a reference guide). Otherwise, you may be able to get away with a previous textbook you already own.
