PUFF Guide to laboratory components

Laboratory work is an important part of your professional training for the pharmacy or prescriptionist profession and contributes to the development of a scientific approach. Laboratory components in the education are central to understanding the scientific basis on which the pharmaceutical subjects are based.

Laboratory components also provide skills that are very useful in your future profession. In the laboratory work, you practice, among other things, planning and organisation of work, documentation, analysis and plausability assessment of data, use of mathematical and statistical tools, collaboration as well as written and oral presentation and discussion.

Most terms at the Master of Science Programme in Pharmacy contain practical laboratory work. They increase in complexity to prepare you, as a pharmacy student, to complete an individual, independent specialication project in term 9 of the programme, followed by placement and working life as a professional pharmacist.

The PUFF Guide to laboratory components contains a description of the skills practiced in laboratory work. By being aware of these and reflecting on how you develop your skills, you will be well prepared for professional life. You will use the content of the guide throughout your education programme. You will return to some parts during several courses.
