 جامعة الزرقاء - كلية الصيدلة بجامعة الزرقاء تعقد امتحان الأوسكي "OSCE" لتقييم طلبتها

On Thursday, August 18, 2022, the Faculty of Pharmacy at Zarqa University held the “OSCE” exam to assess the pharmacy training course students.

The exam aims to assess the educational attainment and clinical skill the student needs to provide integrated pharmaceutical care.

The Dean of the Faculty of Pharmacy, Dr. Ahlam Al-Kilani, indicated that the Faculty of Pharmacy has been holding the exam regularly since 2018, which in turn is reflected in the quality of outputs and increases opportunities for networking and partnerships with various pharmaceutical sectors.

She pointed out that the exam aims to evaluate students' performance to determine their weaknesses and strengths and improve their skills, in addition to a practical application of the subjects the student studied, and to ensure that the student acquires the necessary knowledge and skills and provides the opportunity to simulate reality and deal directly with the patient.

The Student Evaluation Committee included experts and academics from outside the university as external examiners and evaluators, representing academics in faculties of pharmacy in public and private universities, pharmacists working in community pharmacies and hospitals, and professionals in the nursing sector.
