Overall Assessment
  • The review panel was impressed by the high
    levels of concern and interest for the quality of
    teaching and learning displayed by staff of the
    School.
  • Appropriate curriculum revisions
  • Effective monitoring and refinement of curriculum
    using a wide range of feedback

6
Strengths of the Programme
  • Programme Management and Quality Assurance
  • A lively and effective Curriculum Committee
  • Evidence of successive improvements to the
    curriculum from the SEQ and alumni surveys

7
Strengths of the Programmecontd
  • Learning Outcomes
  • Among the pioneers in specifying programme- or
    professional-specific learning outcomes
  • Data indicate an increase in students
    perceptions of the development of both generic
    and professional capabilities

8
Strengths of the Programmecontd
  • Content and Learning Activities
  • Introduction to Pharmacy (Year 1) course provides
    a valuable roadmap of the programme
  • School was enthusiastic about making more use of
    IT in teaching and learning
  • Students and alumni found the overseas exchange
    programme to be an enlightening experience

9
Strengths of the Programmecontd
  • Professional Development of Teachers
  • High levels of participation in professional
    development activities of members of the School
  • Adjunct tutors provide a positive learning
    environment for the students

10
Weaknesses of the Programme
  • Content
  • Tight schedule and heavy workload, particularly
    in Year 1
  • Few choices of electives except for Year 3
  • Learning Activities
  • Low levels of active learning and patient care
    activities in Year 1 and Year 2

11
Weaknesses of the Programmecontd
  • Assessment
  • Heavy reliance on tests and examinations in some
    courses
  • Lack of formal mechanism of collecting feedback
    from adjunct tutors

12
Modifications Needed
  • Course Content and Scheduling
  • Devise schedules more consistent with student
    desires
  • Offer parallel elective courses, focusing upon
    specialization of practice

13
Modifications Neededcontd
  • Learning Activities
  • Develop integrated didactic and experiential
    learning that transcends all 3 years of study
  • Greater emphasis of active learning for all
    years, particularly Year 1 and Pharmacy Law
    course

14
Modifications Neededcontd
  • Assessment and Feedback
  • Greater use of forms of assessment other than
    tests and examinations
  • Provide professional development for adjunct
    tutors and collect feedback from them regularly

15
Challenges
  • Time constraints
  • 3-year B.Pharm vs. 4-year M.Pharm (UK) and 6-year
    Pharm.D (USA)
  • Resource constraints
  • Small student number in offering electives
  • Funding issues for overseas student exchange
    programmes

16
Challengescontd
  • Motivating teachers
  • Service teaching departments and adjunct teachers
    to align their teaching with the learning needs
    of our students
  • Harmonizing the philosophy and value of the
    entire teaching team

17
Ultimate Challenge
  • Build a case to support a role for pharmacist as
    a bridge between the patient and the doctor in
    designing as well as monitoring drug therapy
  • Create a critical mass of academic staff and
    students to derive maximal benefit in learning

18
Opportunities
  • The Integrated Healthcare Model
    (Multidisciplinary Care)
  • Where do the 3 curricula intersect?
  • Team education and cross training of the 3
    professions

Thank you.
