High school students introduced to the pharmacy profession
2014-12-25

Twenty-five (25) female students from Rawda Bint Jassim High School were oriented on the courses, programs and facilities at CPH during a recent tour at the College.

 

During the visit, the students had the opportunity to network with CPH assistant dean for Outreach and Engagement Dr Mohammad Diab who gave them an insight on the different scholarship programs, postgraduate studies and career opportunities available to students after graduation.   

 

The students also observed a unique interaction between a physician, a pharmacist and a patient, which is usually used as part of the Structured Multi-Skill Assessments (SMSA). They were also oriented on the consequences of patients being treated with the wrong prescription. A hands-on lab experiment led by Dr Fatima Mraiche and Master’s student Sadaf Riaz was performed by the students at the Cardiovascular Research Lab.

 

During the tour, teaching assistant at the College Reem Al Mannai gave the students a brief on the importance of technology in teaching pharmacy through the use of “smart classrooms”, “Blackboard 9”, iPads, and electronic learning resources. They also had the chance to meet with and talk to CPH partners from different healthcare institutes, and to discuss with Master’s student Fatima Al Sulaiti and undergraduate student Dina Abushanab who shared their experiences at the College.

 

CPH dean Dr Ayman El-Kadi encouraged female students to become tomorrow’s healthcare leaders to fulfill the needs of Qatar National Vision 2030 and contribute to a healthier nation. The students also heard from academic advisor at Center for Academic Advising and Retention Kholoud Bastaki who presented the “Top 10 reasons to be a pharmacist”.
