UW School of Pharmacy Lab Implements Safe In-Person Student Learning
The University of Wyoming’s School of Pharmacy is now fully immersed in on-campus learning for students as part of UW’s Phase 3 reopening process.
In addition to standard safety procedures adhered to in all pharmacy labs, in-person learning is conducted under UW’s guidelines for COVID-19 safety.
Baskaran “Baski” Thyagarajan, an associate professor of pharmaceutics and neuroscience, and his class of first-year pharmacy students have demonstrated how safety procedures for students can be followed in a confined laboratory.
The Pharmaceutical Care Learning Center (PCLC) is located on the third floor of the School of Pharmacy wing in the UW College of Health Sciences.
“This is an interesting lab as our students will learn how to change a medication delivered via one formulation to another — it is an interformulation conversion learning activity,” Thyagarajan says. “This activity is for the ‘Pharmacist Skills I-Practical Aspects of Dosage Form Design’ course.”
