Interdisciplinarity / multidisciplinarity of curriculum
The study of pharmacy is multidisciplinary, includes basic (mathematics, chemistry, physics, statistics, biochemistry, biology, molecular biology, microbiology), biomedical (anatomy, physiology, pathophysiology, pharmacology, toxicology) and professional subjects (pharmacognosy, pharmaceutical chemistry, biochemistry) pharmaceuticals, drug design, drug analytics, clinical pharmacy, pharmacotherapy, cosmetology, etc.) to achieve the acquisition of specific knowledge and skills in the field of pharmacy. From basic, biomedical and specific professional subjects student acquires knowledge and skills needed in research and development and application of drugs, skills and in the field of organization of laboratory work, automation, electronic data processing, and computerization of the laboratory system.
Modernity of the study program
Pharmacists are expected to, in addition to traditional knowledge and skills, acquire the specific competencies necessary for the implementation of pharmaceutical health care, rational and responsible use of drugs, as well as to participate in the management of limited resources of the health system. The European legal framework prescribes minimum requirements for the recognition of qualifications of health professionals in the EU (Directive 2005/36 / EC and 2013/55 / EU). At EU level, there are strategic guidelines that state that pharmacists will play a key role in achieving an efficient and sustainable health system in the 21st century (EU PHARMINE: Pharmacy Education in Europe). At the global level, the International Federation of Pharmacy emphasizes the importance of identifying national and societal needs, defining the role of pharmacists in providing health care and involving all relevant actors in the process of ensuring and improving the quality of education (Quality Assurance of Pharmacy Education: the FIP Global Framework). Accordingly, the study program Pharmacy is conceived as an integrated interdisciplinary curriculum based on clearly defined competencies. Active learning methods are applied during the studies, including clinical practice and interprofessional teaching activities. The study program emphasizes the commitment to the health needs of the population and envisages the continuous improvement of the teaching competencies of the teaching staff who participate in the innovation of education.
Interaction with professional practice
The study is designed so that future graduates acquire adequate knowledge and competencies to work with drugs in public, private and hospital pharmacies, work in the pharmaceutical industry, biochemical laboratories, research, production technology and control-analytical laboratories, drug marketing, drug registration, agencies for medicines, drug control institutes, and in other public health institutions and private health institutions that will provide them with employment in various fields of pharmacy and clinical biochemistry.
COMING SOON: University study
