The creation of the department is a historical event of Rivne Medical Academy, which was preceded by no less important events in the history of the educational institution. By the decision of the Rivne Regional Council dated July 27, 2018, No. 1035, the college was renamed into Rivne Medical Academy. Later in the structure of the academy Rivne Medical College and Kostopil Medical College were formed. Since September 5, 2018, the Academic Council of the Academy works in the institution, and on September 25, 2018, its historic meeting took place: the establishment of the medical-pharmaceutical faculty and two graduating departments of medical-prophylactic disciplines and chemical-pharmaceutical disciplines. From January 2, 2019, the institution began work in a new structural format. The key direction of its activity the Department of Chemical and Pharmaceutical disciplines determined the continuous improvement of the educational process with the maximum application of innovative technologies and a student-oriented approach to learning.
The department consists of scientific-pedagogical and pedagogical workers, who are internal part-timers in Rivne Medical College.
Scientific and pedagogical members of the department
The department carries out the professional training of undergraduate students in the field of "Health Care", who acquire the profession of a pharmacist, a physical rehabilitologist, a laboratory assistant and a nurse. The department is graduating for students studying in the specialty 226 "Pharmacy, industrial pharmacy". The educational-professional program of the first (Bachelor) level of highest education on the specialty 226 "Pharmacy, industrial pharmacy" is developed.
Educational and methodical work of the department
The teachers of the Department of chemical and pharmaceutical disciplines carry out the professional training of students in pharmaceutical, chemical disciplines, as well as disciplines of the natural sciences.
Theoretical classes take place using multimedia technologies. In order to conduct interesting scientific discussions during theoretical studies students can familiarize themselves with the coverage of the topics of current and next topics by revising information (presentations, methodological developments, instructions for conducting classes, test tasks, etc.) in the closed system of the web resource of Rivne Medical Academy. Practical classes are conducted using modern laboratory equipment, toolkits, demonstration materials, reference information on paper and electronic media. All this allows teachers to create an atmosphere for students while conducting practical classes as close as possible to those working conditions in which they will soon fall. The students conduct chemical research, with the help of modern equipment and laboratory utensils, determine the qualitative and quantitative composition of medicinal substances, solve situational problems, develop algorithms of pharmaceutical care, learn to communicate reasonably and scientifically. In the context of independent work students emphasize on the performance of individual research tasks. In addition, teachers often have interesting extraordinary events: integrated classes, round tables, press conferences, contests of individual research, brain rings and other various educational activities.
Scientific and pedagogical problems that the Department of chemical and pharmaceutical disciplines is working on:
In addition, scientific and pedagogical staff of the department work on professional scientific issues, which is a logical continuation of their work.
Teachers actively involve the students into the research work, give them opportunity to try themselves as young scientists. Also, together with students, they participate in scientific and practical conferences of the Ukrainian and international level.
Educational work of the department
A fruitful working process is always present in a friendly team.
That is why teachers actively carry out various thematic activities with the involvement of students. These are excursions to pharmaceutical factories, attending presentations of scientific publications, holding charity events and more. It is already traditional to hold a charity action "Pharmacy of Happiness", which is gradually becoming a kind of business card of our educational institution and the Department of chemical and pharmaceutical disciplines in particular. The idea's authors, Tetiana Nesteruk and Oksana Fylypiuk, actively involve the students into this event. And “Pharmacy of Happiness” guests are always inspired to participate, buy miracle pills and donate for charity.
