Honestly I wouldn't recommend taking those two classes together. However depends if you have impeccable memorizational skills.

Two challenging courses to take in the summer, no doubt. I would ensure you have the time to dedicate to both. Rule of thumb that I have practiced, is studying 2-3x the course credit per week in hours. Meaning, if you are taking a 3 credit course, studying 6-9 hours per week. This is on top of the course lectures and any assignments. Hope this helps.

I took physiology over summer, but I was in the quarter system so it went by fast! If it had anatomy lab, it would have been too hard to add on pharmacology as well. It is not impossible, but your summer will be taken away with very rigorous classes and a lot of studying!

Side note: from what I remember, pharmacology is not necessary for admission to medical school. It wont help much on the MCAT either. Unless you need it for your major, then I would hold off on taking it if you're premed.

If you are taking these classes during the summer and need to get A's, I would recommend taking them at a community college. Your GPA is of utmost importance in applying to medical school, and you wouldn't want to compromise it by taking two challenging courses at the same time.

I have taken four summer classes once, but let's just say you do not learn anything because the classes are either rushed and not condensed enough. If you want to take a science course, then I recommend that you take the Anatomy class, because it can give you more time to study. Or if you want to take two classes then take a science course and an easy course, so you can get the grade that you desire.
