Otherwise, Pharmacokinetics as the discipline in the curriculum of the Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Belgrade, was introduced in year 1981/82., being a part of the subject Pharmacology with Pharmacokinetics. Lectures and practice of Pharmacokinetics were developed and for the first five generations of students performed by prof. dr Milena Pokrajac. The first textbook and handbook on the Pharmacokinetics in Serbian language, which has several editions to date, was written by prof. dr Milena Pokrajac. In school year 1985/86, Pharmacokinetics was introduced as a separate subject in the curriculum and for teaching assistant was chosen Branislava Miljković, now professor and head of the Department of Pharmacokinetics and Clinical Pharmacy. By increasing the amount of teaching, there was a need for new associates and at the Department in different time periods were employed pharmacists: Branka Brzakovic (1989-2001.), Aleksandra Galetin (1993-1998.), Ivan Kovacevic (1999-2003.), Anita Rakic ​​(2001-2004.), Marija Petronijevic (2005-2007.).
