Year 5 Pharmacy Students Restart Clerkship Activities For Their Last Academic Year

With reference to the letter from the Ministry of Health, ‘N0165 អបស.អធម’, dated June 9th, 2020, allowing health science students of all levels and specialties who are studying in the final year, and intern students, to redo their clinical internships in hospital for the academic year 2019-2020, University of Puthisastra (UP) has sent 110 pharmacy students (Batch 5) to continue their clerkships in Pharmaceutical Industry, Quality Control, Pharmacy Management and Traditional Medicine.

The intended clerkship objectives are to put students into real pharmaceutical practice, to carry out professional responsibilities, direct them to contact with reality, to familiarize students with professional activities and practices.

Pharmacy students can gain much more knowledge in public sectors and they have a lot of opportunities to practice with modern equipment and contact with the government and industry’s staff. Before allowing students to do internships, the Faculty of Pharmacy designed safety clerkship guidelines and provided safety training to students. Also, our clerkship preceptors will follow up on student activities to make sure students are learning within a safe learning environment. The preceptors also evaluate our pharmacy students’ performance based on their UP preparations:

Pharmaceutical industry:

  • Pharma Product Manufacturing (PPM) and Chea Chamnan Laboratories Co.Ltd (CMP)

Quality Control:
