Rümeysa Demirdamar, Hale Zerrin Toklu, Bülent Gümüsel

As in many developing countries, pharmacists have a distinct role in providing rational use of medicines, and also in patient education in the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC). Since in the primary health system many patients apply to pharmacists and consult them, providing good pharmacy practice in community pharmacies is essential in promoting rational use of medicine. Thus, it became inevitable for the Near East University (NEU) Faculty of Pharmacy to prepare its curriculum to be competent with the changing role of the profession. Our aim was to provide an overview of the current status of pharmacy education at NEU Faculty of Pharmacy. Therefore, the current practice of pharmacy profession and the education of the school of pharmacy in NEU/ TRNC are reviewed.
