There’s a Lack of Training Positions
The articles reflect the plight of some pharmacy graduates who have not obtained their postings since their graduation at the end of last year.
Pharmacy graduates have to undergo a one-year training programme followed by a one-year compulsory national service before they can become fully registered pharmacists with the Malaysian Pharmacy Board.
Both have to be carried out at an approved institution, which at the moment are the government hospitals and university hospitals.
This is the final phase of the training of the pharmacy graduates towards the real-life situations that they may face in their career as pharmacists so that they can serve the public better.
The number of graduates coming out of pharmacy schools and seeking training
placement has been increasing over the years.
From a mere 420 in 2005, the number grew to 925 in 2010.
Such an increase, we believe, has placed a burden on the institutions.
It is just not the number of places that can be made available, but also the number
of qualified tutors and preceptors that are required.
