Abstract:

Objectives: To develop and implement an elective advanced pharmaceutical compounding course in a setting of limited: budgets, personnel and specialized equipment. To offer students exposure to various contemporary dosage forms as well as to the innovative procedures and novel apparatus used in their formulation, all in a setting where conventional lab teaching methods are otherwise cost prohibitive and/or impractical.
Methods: A weekly three-hour laboratory, organized into five parenteral and five non-sterile compounding workstations, was developed. Each station represents a different product where students formulate, compound and dispense one product weekly. Students rotate to a new position weekly and eventually progress through all ten stations. Instructor(s) circulate among stations providing individual assistance. In this way many are served in a laboratory having only one: ointment mill, TPN compounder, etc.. Outside class students review video lectures in which instructor(s) demonstrate equipment use, procedures and calculations. Six stations currently have such videos. The remaining four are a work in progress. Students are evaluated by laboratory reports, product analysis and written examinations.
Results: An advanced pharmaceutical compounding course has been developed and successfully implemented in a setting where conventional laboratory teaching methods were cost prohibitive and impractical.
Implications: First offered in Spring 2002 with three students, this course has since evolved to accommodate 20 (target: 30). Per student surveys and course evaluations, this course has been well accepted. This rotational format has enabled an individual instructor to maximize the potential of limited resources while providing a professionally relevant and challenging experience in pharmaceutical compounding.
