PHARMACEUTICAL TECHNOLOGY LABORATORY
The learning process in tertiary institutions requires supporting facilities and infrastructure, including a comfortable and adequate lecture building, the learning process for pharmacy education is not only carried out in the lecture hall but also in the laboratory.
The Department of Pharmacy has a laboratory to hone student skills, one of which is the Pharmacy Technology laboratory. The pharmaceutical laboratory activities consist of a learning and research process. The learning process in the pharmaceutical laboratory includes formulation practicum courses and quality control for solid preparations in the form of tablets, capsules and powders. Practicum formulation and quality control for liquid-semisolid preparations in the form of creams, lotions, suspensions, emulsions and suppos. The formulation practicum and quality control for sterile preparations include infusion, injection and parenteral nutrition. Physical pharmacy practicum studies aspects of basic science in the formulation of pharmaceutical preparations in order to meet the principles of safety, efficacy and quality of drugs. This course is a course that supports the competence of a pharmacy graduate in the field of pharmaceutical technology.
The practical learning process is carried out using the SCL (student center learning) method, one of which is the Project Based Learning method, students have the opportunity to think creatively and learn independently. In the learning process students are given case studies, one of which is in the field of dosage formulation. Students are expected to be able to design, manufacture and evaluate the resulting preparations. The results of the products presented will be presented in the form of an exhibition of student product creativity. The learning process through Project Based Learning has the aim that students have good self-management and group skills, are results-oriented and foster an entrepreneurial spirit to produce products that can be produced and have marketability.
Pharmaceutical technology laboratories are not only used to support practicum activities, but also in the field of research and training, including research and training in the field of nanopharmaceutical formulations which are the scientific concern and excellence of the pharmacy department.
As the mandate responsibility of the founders of UII who are the founding figures of the nation. Learning and research activities are not only carried out internally at UII but with higher education institutions outside UII. Institutions outside UII send lecturers and students to conduct research and practicum by using the facilities and infrastructure owned by the pharmaceutical technology laboratory, as a form of UII’s dedication to the advancement of Indonesian education.
Pharmacy technology laboratory activities in the field of education, learning and research can support the quality of pharmacy graduates, especially in the field of pharmaceutical technology, produce graduates who are competent, have Islamic insight and can compete in the global arena as a form of commitment and responsibility from the department of pharmacy to the quality of graduates produced.
