PUFF’s Guide to Laboratory components

Laboratory sessions are an important part of your professional training for the pharmacy profession and contribute to the development of a scientific approach. The programme’s laboratory work are central to understanding the scientific basis underlying pharmacy subjects. Laboratories also provide skills that are very useful in your future profession. The laboratory sessions include practising planning and organising work, documentation, analysis and plausibility assessment of data, the use of mathematical and statistical tools, collaboration and written and oral presentation and discussion.

The majority of semesters in the Master of Science Programme in Pharmacy contain practical laboratory sessions that increase in complexity through the course of the programme to prepare you to implement an individual, independent advanced project in semester 9, followed by placement and working life as a professional pharmacist.

PUFF’s Guide to Laboratory Components contains a description of the skills practised in laboratory sessions. By being aware of these and reflecting on how to develop your skills, you will be well prepared for professional working life, according to the Master of Science Programme in Pharmacy’s qualitative targets. You will use the content of the guide throughout your degree programme; during several courses you will return to some parts.
