- Farmacia Territoriale "Chiara Colombo" (in Italian)
The DSTF and the Order of Pharmacists for the Province of Turin (Ordine dei Farmacisti della Provincia di Torino) is offering a specialization master of Science in Community Pharmacy: the "Chiara Colombo" degree course. The course is a unique opportunity for pharmacists to develop the skills needed for a community pharmacy. Subjects include legislation, strategic and operative marketing as well as the management of human resources and has the the aim of increasing customer satisfaction and fidelity by acquiring basic health and communication skills. Client counselling will also be included as will the knowledge required for appropriate drug administration and the sale of medical devices and OTCs.
There will be a practical laboratory section for the development of Galenic formulations of pharmaceuticals with a view to improving production capacity and an appreciation of its professional importance. By the end of their training, pharmacists will have acquired the necessary skills to carry out the activity of pharmacy manager/owner as well as being able to organise public community pharmacies. Graduates will be able to cover managerial and organisational posts in specific areas and manage pharmacies with the knowledge required to develop a community pharmacy where one must be established or reorganised.
- Tecnologie Farmaceutiche e Attività Regolatorie (in Italian)
Knowledge of quality control and regulation are becoming ever more sought after by a number of industry job providers (the pharmaceutical, food, cosmetics and chemistry industries, for example). These needs, expressed by industry, have also been reiterated by government bodies that have been present at a number of public job placement events that the department has organised in recent years.
This master's program aims to combine advanced theoretical and practical knowledge of the pharmaceutical technology field with sufficient regulatory support, whether it is for the production or registration of pharmaceuticals.
The evolution of the pharmaceutical field, brought about by new production and administration technologies, has been so extraordinary that the registration, production, market and use of new pharmaceutical forms, which have now become true and proper drug release systems, requires a parallel updating and deepening of what technological innovation means for present and future regulations on drug production and registration, with special attention to be paid to pharmaceutical quality control. Legal and administrative topics therefore find ample room for development in this master's program.
