Indemnity Cover Provided for UKZN BPharm Students
As part of the requirements for their degree, BPharm students participate in work-based learning activities including ward pharmacy, dispensing of medicine and patient counselling for which the Pharmaceutical Society of South Africa (PSSA) requires them to have indemnity cover.
PSSA’s KwaZulu-Natal Coastal branch and the KwaZulu-Natal Pharmaceutical Association have sponsored indemnity cover this year for all Level 3 and Level 4 UKZN BPharm students who also received PSSA membership which is important as it informs the individuals about the profession early in their careers as well as providing guidance on the road to becoming competent healthcare practitioners.
UKZN’s Discipline of Pharmaceutical Sciences and the School of Health Sciences thanked the PSSA for the significant contribution, expressing hope of fostering further links between the Society and UKZN.
