The pharmaceutical education and the examinations - to be taken in three sections - in the state examination course are prescribed uniformly throughout Germany by the licensing regulations for pharmacists and are divided into two parts: The first part takes place as a degree programme at the university and ends with the second part of the pharmaceutical examination. The university degree in Pharmacy consists of a broad spectrum of scientific subjects from the fields of pharmaceutical biology, pharmaceutical chemistry, pharmaceutical technology, pharmacology, clinical pharmacy and history of pharmacy. The course of studies serves to acquire skills and methods that enable students to work scientifically and to exercise the profession of pharmacist in a responsible manner. After the main study stage and successful second state examination, the second part of the pharmaceutical training takes place in the so-called Practical Year for Pharmacists.
