benefits of Implementing CTF

Students are key element of CTF as they will be the ones applying for the hospital pharmacy specialisation. CTF will imply more mobility for students and graduates since hospital pharmacists will be allowed to practice the profession in other countries without having to repeat their specialisation courses.

  • Improving mobility of students and teachers;

  • Better outcomes for patients as the standards to become a hospital pharmacist have been raised;

  • Better jobs opportunity as recent graduates can move and work easily within Europe.
