interesting content. liked the medicine part of the unit but not so much on the historical part. the mcq tests were difficult imo, but the exam was fair and many of the questions came from the previous year's exam. would recommend it for someone who likes BOTH history and medicine

Really great unit- I highly recommend to anyone who enjoys medicine or history, as it's a great combination of both. Some revision is required to get a HD, but the final exam is extremely similar to practice tests and preparatory material the coordinators provide, so just go over these a few times and you'll be set. The content itself is really interesting, and the assessments are ran really well

V nice unit but a lot of history to memorise and takes up a surprising amount of effort to HD for an elective

I found this unit absolutely fascinating! I thoroughly enjoyed all of the lectures, especially in comparison to my other units (drier, more intense and content-heavy). I'm confused by the negative reviews below - with decent revision and good effort on the essay, an HD is easily obtainable.

the actual worst, boring as paint drying and requires so much memorising

This unit has changed considerably from last year. Do not take this unit if you are looking for an easy HD to boost your GPA, unless you've got photographic memory and can remember many insignificant details such as specific dates, names and chemicals. The exam is no longer open book, the drugs pioneer assignment was changed to an essay and was marked very harshly and the content covered was very broad and not very interesting

This unit is amazing if you’re interested in drugs or medicine in general. The content is fairly broad including well-known drugs, diseases, historical figures, events and drug development. The unit coordinators are very helpful and passionate. You do not need to have a science background to take this unit, but it does help. The assessments involve 3 MC tests, an essay on a notable person relevant to an important drug(s) and a MC exam which is like a combination of the 3 MC tests. Something to be aware of is this unit is no longer open book, but the assessments are fair. I would not call this unit “an easy HD”, but a HD is still very achievable.

Reading past reviews I thought it'd be a lot easier than it was. There is a lot of content to remember and the exam WAS NOT OPEN BOOK so basically had to remember a lot. The eTutes were ok, just long and the 3 tests during the semester were as expected. The essay I think was harshly marked but what you had to do for it was easily outlined and you knew what to do. My biggest tip if for the extended multiple choice in the exam, the 6 topics were given on LMS in the exam tab so look at them, find the info and know that basically, like what all the pioneers did, what drugs did what, what were the receptors ect. Doing that will save you for the extended but for the rest of the exam, just know your stuff.

Do not take this unit it has been changed from previous years. It is no longer open book and the content is too much. The exam consists of extended multi choice making it impossible to get the right answer unless you know the content back to front! Content is also very boring, too many names and dates to remember!

One of the easiest units you can do. Etute quizzes are open book therefore are not hard to score 100%. The assignment may require a bit more effort but you can complete that well ahead of the due date. Exam consisted of recycled MCQs and SAQs that you were basically given in the final lecture.
