FACULTY OF PHARMACY – EDUCATION AND TRAINING

Romania's adhering to the European economic and social structures imposed a major reconsidering and restructuring of the pharmaceutical education in order to be in agreement with the European Union regulations.

Pharmaceutical education has seen a switch towards medical and biological sciences with an obvious pragmatic character, directed towards the patient needs, without neglecting the traditional component, based mainly on chemistry and plant sciences, as an interface between the pharmaceutical industry and the medical system. Providing an appropriate context to implement strategies in the healthcare domain and promoting health education, our university curricula was reconsidered and remodeled according to the requirements of the European Union and World Health Organization.

The pharmacist has a significant social impact, being the professional involved in designing, testing, manufacturing, analyzing and distributing of medicines. All these aspects require a high level of theoretical and practical interdisciplinary knowledge, obtained by correlation of both physico-chemical and medical-biological issues. As a result of its academic training, the pharmacist will have the professional profile which certifies his authority both in the analytical and toxicological domain and in the clinical and pharmacological one, as well as the achievement of a special social position (satisfying the population needs for health information, education and prophylaxis). At the end of the pharmacy study program, the graduate student will have the following skills validated by the final exams:

- solid theoretical and practical knowledge in the field of cosmetic product;

- knowledge of chemistry, technology and analysis of cosmetic product;

- practical skills necessary to achieve simple procedures for body beauty maintenance.

Students interested in research are involved in research activities as members of one of the students research groups organized in each discipline. The teaching and research staff of these groups introduce students to scientific research, help them carry out projects, and encourage them to present their results at scientific meetings. This kind of extracurricular activity is very important for those who are interested in obtaining a master or PhD degree.
