Clinical Pharmacy Master program

The Master's program consists of five full-time semesters after the Bachelor's degree.   This program is distinguished by preparing the graduate to assume his professional role in the advanced practice of clinical and hospital pharmacy in various work institutions such as hospitals, primary health care, health education, and health care institutions of all kinds in the government and private sectors. The program has been designed so that the student acquires the necessary skills and abilities in the fields of theoretical and clinical treatments that place him in the main sites of practice

The student acquires the necessary skills and abilities in the fields of theoretical and clinical treatments that place him in basic, applied and clinical practice institutions. The program consists of two levels: Three semesters of theoretical courses followed by two semesters of periodic clinical training, focusing in the first three semesters is on the clinical implications that related to research studies through intensive lectures on pharmacotherapy, pharmacokinetics, hospital pharmacy management, and immunology Clinical.

The curriculum also provides students with information at the core of basic professional knowledge, and skills in clinical scientific research methods, and evaluation the medical and pharmaceutical publications, including the necessary statistical analysis methods which important for selecting clinical research hypotheses.

The other two semesters are focusing on clinical training that provides the student with the opportunity to apply the theoretical knowledge acquired in pharmacy practice in the various fields of patient pharmacy care. In addition to improve advanced pharmacy practice skills, the student gains more confidence in applying clinical principles based on scientific evidence to make drug treatment decisions. This stage consists of eight training periods of one-month duration each chosen from among the following training areas:

  1. . Clinical Pharmacy in Various Medical Specialties.
  2. . Therapeutic Monitoring of Drugs.
  3.   Hospital Pharmacy Management. 

During this stage, the student procedure a research project to complete the requirements for the master's degree.

 

Study requirements:

The duration of the program is only five semesters. The student is not granted additional time except with the approval of the department council, and only in exceptional circumstances, such as illness, military service, and others. The study takes place at the College of Pharmacy at King Saud University and in the hospitals that are chosen. The student must complete (27) credit hours of theoretical lectures and courses. (24) credit hours of field clinical training courses; And (3) credit hours for the research project. Students are evaluated through written examinations for each course, in addition to continuous evaluation of the skills acquired in the training courses.

As for the research project, it will be evaluated based on the appropriateness of the research hypotheses and design, review of publications, the method of conducting the research and collecting data, the validity of the conclusions drawn from the statistical inference, discussion of the results, the importance of the research, and future research needs.

 

Training Methods:

The program has been designed, so there are four sides of training:

  1. Formal lectures and practical lessons.
  2. Clinical training under constant supervision in the hospital.
  3. Research activities under the supervision of faculty members in the hospital or laboratory.
  4. Short lectures and reports on the research project.
