Course content

The course aims to nurture the passion of final year Pharmacy students for inquiry and knowledge creation through fostering their intellectual rigor in tackling research questions related to pharmacy and pharmaceutical sciences, and developing their academic communication skills. It also aims to not only provide hands-on research experience gained through project work, but also to develop students higher order thinking skills, such as the critical evaluation of information, as well as hone students written and oral academic communication skills in the context of pharmaceutical sciences and practice.
