The Apprentiss Centre is a vast hub of simulation-based learning. Here students are immersed in settings that recreate various clinical environments.
Instruction through simulation activities has many advantages:
The Faculty of Pharmacy’s Apprentiss Centre has three high-tech pharmacies.
The experimentation laboratory teaches undergraduate pharmacy degree students about non-sterile magistral preparations. Here students can also study the physicochemical characteristics of medications by handling various pharmaceutical forms.
For the duration of their program, students can learn through simulations of pharmacy practice situations recreated in the faculty’s new laboratory with 10 fully equipped stations. These facilities, the first of their kind in Québec, teach students what to expect once they enter the profession.
The clean room has eight sterile hoods, six of which are biological, and meets all quality standards for the industry. Pharmacists and pharmacy technical assistants can be trained and certified here for the preparation of sterile products.
