Brilliant final year students ofÂ Pharm-DÂ fromÂ School of Pharmacy, Hajvery UniversityÂ have displayed theirÂ Pharmaceutical Technology and Clinical Pharmacy ProjectsÂ in an extravagant event organized by the Faculty of Pharmacy onÂ 29thÂ January, 2015. The chief guestÂ Dr. Khalid Hussain, President Pakistan Pharmacist Association (PPA), was highly impressed by the innovation and creativity of the students of Batches 8-1, 8-2A and 8-2B. Final year undergraduates displayed their projects at Euro Campus of Hajvery University.
These projects consisted of various pharmaceutical products manufactured in university laboratories, packaged and promoted by the passing out scholars as a part of their final year coursework. The ingenuity and novelty of the studentâ€™s work was evident from the projects of Pharmaceutical technology, which aimed at forming alternate dosage forms and trying out new combination of drugs. To demonstrate that there dosage forms are better than the conventional drugs available in the local and international market, these final year scholars prepared videos to commentate on this aspect. Clinical pharmacy projects encompassed a great deal of diseases, both communicable and non-communicable, with flexes displaying their signs, symptoms, treatment and prevention. These projects addressed the important issues such as proper use of dosage forms, compliance to medication, medication errors, and following the directions and guidelines provided by World Health Organization (WHO). Students amused the guests and faculty members by promoting their projects in a most extraordinary way. They printed a number of diaries, writing pads, ball pens, mugs and key chains having the brand and generic names of their products. To go a step further, some of the marketing oriented students prepared gift bags containing candies, torch lights, note pads and bouquets made of crape paper.
This outstanding display can be attributed to the tireless hard work of the students and also to the remarkable efforts and guidance of all the faculty members, which brought out the best of the departing undergraduates. These wonderful projects were evaluated by the concerned subject teachers and honorable members of the Pakistan Pharmacist Association and various guests from pharmaceutical industry, retail pharmacies and hospitals.
