Clinical Pharmacists In-The-Making

The university\’s Clinical Skills Center taking its part on the 2nd-year students of the College of Pharmacy on their journey to become Clinical Pharmacists.


In this session, these future Clinical Pharmacists were trained to Intravenous Cannulation – a pertinent procedure in the practice of their profession. It is a technique in which a cannula is placed inside a vein to provide intravenous access that  allows for the withdrawal of samples from the patient\’s blood, administration of fluids, medications, intravenous nutrition, chemotherapy and blood products. Students also trained today on Endotracheal Intubation, which is the insertion of a tube into the trachea to keep the airways open and as a conduit for giving the patient certain medications through this tube.


Training on these topics is included in the curriculum to equip these students with competence prior to real clinical practice.


The second year of the College of Pharmacy consists of 46 students divided into 4 groups and each group is subdivided into smaller groups within the laboratory in order to maintain the implementation of precautionary measures to combat the Corona pandemic (COVID-19).
