The Managing Director of GSK Pharmaceuticals, Lekan Asunni has implored all pharmacists in the country to take advantage of the innovative educational and free online training programme.
He revealed this at the official signing of the Memorandum of Understanding between GSK and PSN (Pharmaceutical Society of Nigeria) on the Scientific Course for Pharmacist Education (SCOPE) programme.
He said upon completion of the programme which consists of nine modules, participants would be issued certificate of completion by Accreditation Council for Pharmacist Education (ACPE).
“The certificate in turn would qualify the pharmacist for 10 credit points towards the required 30 credit points under the Mandatory Continuous Professional Development (MCPD) programme of the pharmaceutical council of Nigeria. ”
Asunni further said that the pharmacists are committed to improving the quality of human life by ensuring that people feel better and live longer.
