TN Visa as a Pharmacologist

What is a Pharmacologist for TN Visa purposes?

Pharmacologists study drug action and the interactions occurring between living organisms and chemicals which affect normal or abnormal biochemical function. They study substances and consider them pharmaceuticals if the substances possess medicinal properties. Pharmacologists focus on drug properties and composition, toxicology, therapy, interactions, anti-pathogenic capabilities, and medical applications. Some Pharmacologists specialize in pharmacodynamics which involves the interactions of chemicals with bio-receptors, and some focus on pharmacokinetics which involves absorption, metabolism, distribution, and excretion of chemicals from biological systems. However, these two main areas of pharmacology are interrelated. The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) provides a detailed breakdown of the Pharmacologists profession.
