Parasitology project in Takeo province on 21st July

The increasing incidence of multi-drug resistant pathogenic bacteria, alongside viral and fungal human pathogens, supports the argument that skills in microbiology and infectious disease diagnosis, treatment and prevention are of growing global importance for health-care professionals, including pharmacists. As such, the role of pharmacists in health care is expanding, punctuating the need to enhance and improve Pharmacy education. One approach to develop a better education and skills for students is through the community project, so students could practice their knowledge and skills in realistic settings. Parasitology is one of the microbiology subjects designed for year-3 pharmaceutical students.

Study tour

Inside the classroom, we can read, listen, write and talk about different topics or see them on pictures where we are able to use our imagination; and only our imagination sets the limit. But in many subjects like pharmaceutical sciences, being in the actual place helps students understand what it’s like and to personally experience the subject through study tours. That is one reason why study tours are being more and more prevalent among students at UP. A study tour is an experience where students study outside as an alternative to traditional classroom-based learning. It is a great and effective way to learn specific subjects beyond textbooks and lectures, to visibly observe the practical work of pharmacists at different settings […]
