Obligatory course if assigned by the Admission committee.
2 credits1SC. Steuer
AbstractThis course provides the basic concepts of pharmaceutical analytics in the context of pharmacopeial regulation. After an introduction to the fundamental techniques and concepts, the participants will study independently, apply and consolidate their knowledge in tutorials.
ObjectiveStudents are able to:
summarize the structure of the Ph. Eur.
summarize the most important pharmacopeias and their communalities and differences
discuss the structure of a monograph
explain qualification of instruments and validation of methods
explain and compare most important analytical techniques for pharmaceutical industry
ContentStudents gain knowledge in pharmaceutical analytics to fulfill regulatory requirements in pharmaceutical industry based on the pharmacopeia in force. Focus is set on method validation, equipment qualification, identification, purity testing and content determination of active pharmaceutical ingredients and excipients.

AbstractThe course provides a platform for the investigation, presentation and discussion of a topic with relevance to the field of pharmaceutical sciences. Students work in small groups on a chosen topic, they write a mini-review and present their work on a one day symposium.
ObjectiveThe main objectives of this course are:

- students develop their scientific reflection (Critical Thinking) and working skills by working independently on a relevant pharmaceutical topic
- students gain in-depth knowledge of the topic investigated
- students train their scientific writing and presentation skills
- students train their ability to plan a project and work in a team
ContentThe Course Drug Seminar takes place during the first 7 weeks of the 1. Master semester. It is a compulsory course of the MSc Pharmacy curriculum and an elective course in the MSc PharmSciences.

The course provides a platform for the investigation, presentation and discussion of a topic with relevance to the field of pharmaceutical sciences.

During the course, students work in small teams on a topic of their choice and elaborate a written mini-review and an oral presentation. Each team is tutored by a lecturer of the Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences. The work is mainly based on literature search / review, but may also involve conducting interviews or site visits, if appropriate. The final presentations of all groups will take place in the framework of a dedicated Symposium held in the middle of the semester.
Prerequisites / NoticeOnly for students of MSc Pharmacy and MSc Pharmaceutical Sciences.
