Stop science focus for pharmacy degrees, chief pharmacist says


I could not disagree more with Mr Scott's opinion. When I graduated from University, our Deen's parting message to our class was ...."do not forget your science"........ This has stuck with me and always will. It has become even more relevant having qualified and worked as a pharmacist across several sectors. Yes, to say that pharmacy is more than science and is bout health provision is true - but our science is the underpinning bedrock to having a sound foundation. How can pharmacists be expected to take on a more hands on clinical role, move away from dispensary, offer more services etc . If they lack the confidence afforded by having a firm grasp of the sciences which underpin the profession.
