Profile of the programme The pharmacist is socially recognized as a professional that works in close proximity to the patient, and is immediately identified by his assignments at the retail pharmacy, hospital pharmaceutical services or clinical analysis. However, the comprehensive training extends the professional practice over several areas, particularly research and development, production and control of food, raw materials and medicines, the biochemical, microbiological and toxicological analysis, pharmaceutical marketing and distribution, among others
As recommended by the National Order of Pharmacists in the “Guide to Accreditation of Degrees”, "… the acquisition of knowledge, skills and attitudes by the future pharmacist should be based on an integrated learning model in order to enable it to the exercise of the pharmaceutical act in all its aspects. The contact with the patient and the profession should be promoted as early as possible in a real working environment, directed to provide acts, pharmaceutical care and health services.” It is also important in this training to create a continuous dynamic between learning, research and profession, involving professionals, teachers and students alike, leading to a mutual influence based on continuous observation, diagnostic and prognostic enabling real time adjustment of strategic paths to follow
Key learning outcomes The acquisition of knowledge, skills and attitudes by the future pharmacist is based on an integrated learning model. The contact with the profession is promoted, in a real working environment, striving to achieve the following objectives: 1. To train professionals in different areas of the professional practice
2. To establish the basis for the subsequent access to specialized pharmaceutical practice, research and development and teaching
3. To train professionals able to integrate the health system and to contribute to its optimization
4. To promote the application of the scientific method to the design, development and discussion of experimental work in the field of health sciences
5. To encourage self-learning, individual study and multidisciplinary team work, and to motivate students to learn throughout life
6. To promote a culture of quality, integrating critical analysis in evaluating problems and making decisions
Occupational profiles of graduates The Master Degree in Pharmaceutical Sciences aims to prepare professionals to work in activities traditionally related to the pharmaceutical profession, such as community and hospital pharmacy, wholesale and retail in medicines, industrial pharmacy, regulation and pharmaceutical legislation, as well as other activities related to patients, medicines and public health. These include clinical analyses, bromatological, hydrological and toxicological analyses, teaching and research.
Learning facilities The Master Course in Pharmaceutical Sciences is taught at the Faculty of Health Sciences, comprising modern buildings equipped with convention rooms, tutorial room, lecture halls and laboratories ensuring the course specificity.
