General presentation

Clinical pharmacy was part, until September 2021, of the Pharmacology – Clinical pharmacy Department of the Faculty of Pharmacy, a discipline led from its establishment (October 2000) until retirement, in 2020, by Mrs. Prof. Univ. Dr. Carmen Cristescu.

Since September 2021, the discipline of Clinical pharmacy has become an independent discipline, along with Pharmaceutical care and Communication in pharmacy, with the promotion to the position of associate professor of clinical pharmacist Valentina Buda (former member of the Discipline Pharmacology – Clinical pharmacy since 2010). From December 2023, it became a University Clinic, along with the change of the University Carta and the Organizational and Operating Regulations of the UMFVBT.

Clinical pharmacy is a modern pharmaceutical discipline that allows the 5th year student to integrate pharmaceutical and biomedical knowledge into the specific clinical context of the patient, thus acquiring a range of practical skills to respond in a timely and appropriate manner to the particular situation of the patient. The Clinical pharmacy is carried out during the first semester of the 5th year, having allocated 2 hours of course and 2 hours of practical works / clinical internships per week, at the headquarters of the discipline and in various medical departments within the hospitals. The information presented to the student has as essential purpose in his preparation in order to personalize the drug therapy, to prevent and combat the iatrogenic pathology, as well as to evaluate the therapeutic protocol from the point of view of the benefit / risk and benefit / cost ratio.

Clinical pharmacy is considered essential in the process of medical-pharmaceutical care, with the aim of increasing the quality of the therapeutic act, with the lowest costs for the medical system. 

The concept of Pharmaceutical care is a relatively new concept designed to continuously improve the use of medicines and maintain / increase the patient’s quality of life. It has been defined as the pharmacist’s commitment to take responsibility for the clinical achievement of the preventive, curative or palliative objectives of pharmacotherapy. Thus, the course of Pharmaceutical care aims to present and analyze the most common medical problems and conditions that require the intervention of the pharmacist: from the prevention of certain pathologies (osteoporosis, coronary heart disease, obesity, hypertension, diabetes, etc.), to the associated recommendation intestinal transit, osteoarthritis, chronic venous insufficiency, etc.), as well as therapeutic counseling (education) of patients. The Pharmaceutical care course takes place during the second semester of the last year of study, being a specialized course for the future pharmacist. 

Clinical pharmacy, along with Pharmaceutical care is, today, the substratum of the pharmacist profession, both for the pharmacist in the community pharmacy as well as for the hospital pharmacist. 

The Communication in pharmacy course aims to present the specific concepts of communication management in promoting health, techniques and skills of effective communication between pharmacist /pharmacy assistant-patient-physician. This course also aims to identify the most effective methods of educating the patient to improve their adherence to treatment and to better manage their own health problems.

The didactic activity of the university clinic:
– courses, practical works and clinical internships for undergraduate programs
– coordination of undergraduate final thesis
– postgraduate continuing education courses for pharmacists/pharmacy assistant/physicians
– coordination of Clinical Pharmacy specialization programme
– coordination of doctoral thesis 

University clinic research activity is based on the following:
– evaluation of the efficacy and safety of several medicines (e.g. antihypertensives, antipsychotics) or phytocompounds
– evaluation of the prescription and use of certain medicines (either in pediatrics, in the adult population or in the elderly) (appropriate/inappropriate prescribing)
– clinical and pre-clinical studies evaluating substances with pharmacological properties. 

Internships abroad:
– Clinical Pharmacy Internship – Universite Catholique de Louvain, Brussels, Belgium – under the coordination of: Anne Spinewine, Olivia Dalleur, Paul Tulkens
– Personalized Medicine Internship – Erasmus University Medical Center, Rotterdam, The Netherlands – coordinated by: Peter J. Van der Speak
