The Department of Pharmacy was established in the year 2002. Since that until February 2013 Associate Professor Vladimir Petrovich Bobruk, who did a lot for scientific and technical establishment of the Department, chaired it. Dr. Bobruk was involved into the formation and organization of the its educational process of the Department of Pharmacy and of the Pharmaceutical Faculty in general.
At present, Doctor of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Associate Professor Elena Krivoyuz, heads the Department of Pharmacy of VNMU.
A united team of qualified employees was created at the Department within a few years after its establishment. This team is able to solve successfully at the modern level various tasks on training the specialists-pharmacists.
One of the first teachers of the Department of Pharmacy were Assoc. Prof. Bolokhovska T. O., Assoc. Prof. Azarov O.S., Assoc.Prof. Yushchenko T.I.
There are 32 teachers work at the Department at present. One doctor of medical sciences (professor - Germaniuk TA,), one doctor of biological sciences (professor - Rodinkova VV), one doctor of pharmaceutical sciences (associate professor - Kryvoviaz O.V.,) are among them. There are also 18 Candidates of Sciences, namely Assoc. Prof. Bobruk V.P., Assoc. Prof. Kryklyva S.D., Assoc. Prof. Palamarchuk O.V., Assoc. Prof. Artemchuk M.A., Assoc. Prof. Sergeev S.V., Assoc. Prof. Koval V.M., Assoc. Prof. Tomashevskaya Yu.O., Assoc. Prof. Balytska O.P., Assoc. Prof. Tozyuk O.Y., Assoc. Prof. Bobrovskaya O.A., Assoc. Prof. Ivko T.I., Ph.D., Assoc. Prof. Voronkina A.S., Ph.D., Assoc. Prof. Grigoruk Yu.M., Ph.D., Assoc. Prof. Kremenskaya L.V., Ph.D. Assoc. Prof. Semenenko O.M., Ph.D., Assoc. Prof. Gutsol V.V., Ph.D., Assoc. Prof. Balinskaya M.V., Assoc. Prof. Shcherba I.K.
Three Senior Teachers (Senior Assistant Gordiyevska N.A., Senior Assistant Blagun O.D., Senior Assistant Gaidai O.D.), six Professor Assistants (Assistant Kramar G.I., Assistant Polishchuk Yu.M., Assistant Balanchuk T.I., Assistant Bondar L.M., Assistant Kudrya V.V., Assistant Kovalska L.V.), two teachers in training (Tatsyuk A.I., Zlagoda V.S.) also work at the Department.
It is important to note, that the qualification of the Department of Pharmacy’ staff differs from the qualification of teachers of other departments. This is because of in addition to scientific and pedagogical experience many teachers have extensive experience of practical activity in the field of pharmacy. These are top-level pharmacists, managers and deputy pharmacy managers, which are doing there scientific and teaching career after the pharmaceutical one.
The main task of the Department is to provide the high-quality education to future specialists and to teach them to be able to organize both an excellent work of pharmacy establishments and their single units, to identify and implement their activities in various areas in order to provide a high level of pharmaceutical assistance to the population.
Specialized disciplines, which are given by the teachers of the Department of Pharmacy, are following:
For the 1st year students they are “Biology with the essentials of genetics”; an elective course "Cell Biology"; Introductory practice for pharmacy economy and management; elective course "Introduction to Pharmacy".
For the 2nd year students – “Pharmaceutical botany”; elective course "Cultivation of Medicinal Plants"; elective course "Modern Problems of Molecular Biology"; elective course “Applied Genetics”; elective course "Theoretical bases of drugs technology"; Practical training on Pharmaceutical Botany.
For the 3rd year students – Technology of drugs: Pharmacy compounding; “Pharmacology”; “Perfume and cosmetics”; “Propedeutical practice on Pharmacy compounding”.
For the 4th year students – “Organization and Economics in Pharmacy”; “Technology of drugs: Industrial Technology”; “Practical training on technology of drugs”; Proceeding practice on Pharmacy compounding, elective course “Training of a pharmaceutical representative”; “Medical and pharmaceutical commodities”;
For the 5th year students – “Technology of cosmetical products”; “Pharmaceutical biotechnology”; “Industrial practice on organization and economy of pharmacy”; “Practical training on Industrial technology of drugs", "Quality systems in pharmaceutics")).
The organization of education and the material resources of the department meet the world standards. For instance, the Department is equipped with a computer system placed in a computer class (12 workplaces) with the possibility of free Internet access. Lectures and practical classes are conducted with the use of educational videos, multimedia projectors and other modern tutorials.
One of the main problems of the future specialist is the level of his professional training in the conditions of competitive labour market. This encourages teachers to seek intensive methods of learning, improving the control of students' knowledge.
Students gain knowledge at practical classes and seminars during their industrial practice in pharmacies and pharmaceutical enterprises in Vinnytsia region and other regions of Ukraine.
What is more, carrying out laboratory and practical classes, during the extra-curricular time, when the teaching and research work is carried out in different sections of the student's scientific group under the guidance of the teachers; students gain their own skills of scientific work. The results of such work are reported at the meetings of the student scientific group of the Department, and the best of them are put forward at student scientific conferences of the national Pirogov Memorial Medical University, Vinnytsya, and other Universities of Ukraine.
