We at Global Electives Port Limited understand that the practice of medicine is an inseparable discourse with pharmacy. Pharmacy is therefore a health profession that merges health sciences with chemical sciences and endeavors to ensure safe and effective use of pharmaceutical drugs.
The practice of pharmacy is dichotomised into two;
Traditional pharmacy roles
compounding and dispensing medications
Modern pharmacy services
clinical services, reviewing medications for safety and efficacy, providing drug information.
In order to produce holistic and well-grounded pharmacists, we have designed and tailor-made our pharmacy program through partnership with medical institutions and other credible pharmaceutical companies to provide both the traditional and modern aspects of pharmacy. This will definitely make your experience a worthwhile endeavour for the fulfilment of your career and professional dreams.
