University of Veterinary and Pharmaceutical Sciences Brno
Faculty of Pharmacy
The University of Veterinary and Pharmaceutical Sciences Brno was founded on December 12, 1918 by Act no. 76/1918 Coll. upon the creation of the Czechoslovak State Veterinary University in Brno. It was the first university to be formed after the creation of the Republic of Czechoslovakia. It was founded within the premises of what had once been cavalry barracks and a provincial training school. The university's founder and first rector was Prof. MUDr. et MVDr. h.c. Eduard Babák. Classes began on November 17, 1919. From its inception, the university developed as a single-faculty university aimed at veterinary medicine (veterinary sciences). In 1975 two colleges were created: the College of General Veterinary Medicine (later renamed College of Veterinary Medicine) and the College of Veterinary Medicine - Food Hygiene (later renamed Veterinary Hygiene and Ecology). In 1990, two faculties were created - the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, focused on veterinary medicine, and the Faculty of Veterinary Hygiene and Ecology, aimed at veterinary hygiene. In 1991, a third faculty was added - the Faculty of Pharmacy, geared towards human and veterinary pharmaceutical sciences. Since 1994, the university has been officially called the University of Veterinary and Pharmaceutical Sciences Brno
The Faculty of Pharmacy enables Master's and Doctoral studies, and takes part in Lifelong Learning.
Master's studies are conducted within the framework of the Master's degree programme in the field of Pharmacy in the languages of Czech and English language. The standard length of study is 5 years. The study is full-time. Studies include not only subjects from the group of basic sciences, mainly focusing on biology and chemistry, but also subjects connected with human health, and subjects from the domain of pharmaceutical-oriented subjects, dealing with natural drugs, chemical drugs, drug technology, pharmacology and toxicology and social pharmacy. During studies, the students gain knowledge of drugs, medicinal preparations, their technological processing, and about the effects of drugs on the human body. Education takes place during lectures, in practical classes, seminars and controlled job training (practice). At the conclusion of studies, students undergo a six months internship in pharmacies. Studies conclude with a final state exam, a part of which is the defence of the student's diploma thesis. After successful completion of studies, graduates acquire the title of "Master" (abbreviated "Mgr.", listed before one's name). Graduates of the Faculty of Pharmacy traditionally find work primarily in pharmacies, but also in pharmaceutical research, manufacturing and distribution of drugs. The current graduate is capable of taking part in the treatment process and, in cooperation with a physician, to select the optimum medicinal preparation for effective treatment. After successfully completing the Master study programme, and based on the defence of an advanced diploma thesis and upon completing a advanced state exam, the graduate may gain the title of "Doctor of Pharmacy" (abbreviated "PharmDr.", listed before one's name).
