300 lvl Bpharm student, UNN and also member Pans HoR. Most students see Pharm Chem as one tough dept although Pharm Tech are gradually taking over that title here in UNN. Lecturers are nice and you merit every single mark yu get. In my opinion, pharmacy is the sweetest course that requires much dedication and commitment. My fav dept so far has to be Cognosy grin

Hoyeenz: Oyin, 500L Unilag student. Pharmacy has been interesting, stressful but in all it has been God so far. Memorable day was sometimes last year we told our lecturers that we were not prepared for the exam. We acted our nollywood movie and at last the exam was postponed and we even chose the date we wanted.

OmolodMilkman93: nice thread

I am Emamomo. I'm
studying pharmacy presently in my 200 level
at University of Port-Harcourt. Its been a little stressful here. We have as our dean a former VC of UNN, Prof O. K. Udeala. We were just thru with our 1st semester exams b4 ASUU came knocking. Hoping to get to know much frm dis thread

Thanks for replying.. I've also done the dept exams but was about to take anatomy, physiology and biochemistry the week the strike began.. Now news that the strike'll soon be called off scares me seriously. The odds we face is not small, our anatomy lecturers hate I mean HATE the word pharmacy, they treat us like... God dey sha..

Mexx baba, Cognosy is a tough one oo, prolly because our lecturers in that dept are not friendly. Pharmchem by far, then Clinical pharmacy, I'll see how pharmacology look like when I start.

Its gonna be written as four although mine was five but I think its becos Pharmacy school doesn't reckon with Part 1 as Part of your Pharmacy knowledge acquisition
process.
However,I want to advise to please not listen to people and lecturers that will say its not about g.p
if you have plans to further or pick up sime reputable jobs or further outside country. ...dont joke with g.p abeg!
4.0 is d minimum you can finish with to have soft landing.
All the best!

Nope..you don't need a Msc in Pharm to go for PharmD, PharmD is just an extension of B.Pharm, with more clinically-oriented stuff! Ward rounds and all. Takes pharmaceutical care to a whole new level and hence, more patient-oriented. Meaning, it involves more of Clinical and Biopharmacy and less of PharmChem and Cognosy.

Msc in Pharm is however in a class of its own!

Pharmacy curriculum comprise a one year preliminary stage (100L) followed by four years (200L through 500L) tough but interesting Professional stages!

So technically, its a five years program!

And after graduating, you go for internship in any of the areas of Pharmacy (hospital, Community or Industry). After this you go for NYSC, after which you will be given a full license to practise and PSN number to go with it!

Here in unn, the courses are not much. Basically the physics, chem and bio are the main courses. then the Gs courses which are basically english courses and use of english. Then the dreaded mth courses. All in all, the physics, chem, biology, maths are same thing with sec school subjects. once yu get yur foumdations right, yu wouldnt have any problems. trust me.

We joins hands.. More Pcl, less pch and PCG won't be bad.. I suppose the short forms for the courses vary with diff schools. In mine it's pct for Ceutics, PCM for micro, Pcl for clinical, PCG for Cognosy, pch for pharmchem and PHA for pharmacology.. Who has something different?

Varies from school to school. But basically mathematics, physics, chemistry and biology are not to be toyed with.. Chem, phy and bio always have their practicals attached. Physic and Chemistry are four unit courses in my school. Someone in urs can help with that..

U can also check out the pcn website or follow this link http://pcn-ng.org/Benchmark%20and%20Minimum%20Academic%20Standard-Pharmaceutical%20Sciences.pdf or
