The University of Dublin (Trinity College)

The School of Pharmacy, Trinity College Dublin, was established in 1977 and was the first centre for pharmaceutical education in Ireland. The School was originally based in Ballsbridge and moved onto the main campus in 1997. The School is now housed in the modern, purpose-built Panoz Institute, at the East End (ie. Science End) of College.
All graduates who wish to practise Pharmacy must be registered with The Pharmaceutical Society of Ireland. In addition, most pharmacists become members of the Society. The professional activities in a community pharmacy must be supervised personally by a pharmacist.
In the hospital services, pharmacists, as members of the health care team, have special responsibilities relating to the supply and use of medicines. The administration of health services by the Health Boards has provided new opportunities for pharmacists, particularly in the area of community care.
Pharmacists in the pharmaceutical industry co-operate with other disciplines in producing medicines of the highest quality and safety. A pharmaceutical qualification is an excellent basis for achieving posts of responsibility at the most senior level. Vacancies for pharmacists with the requisite experience become available at intervals in the Defence Forces.
Pharmacists in the community practice occupy a unique position. A pharmacist's advice is readily available to the public. For that reason, the community pharmacy is the most immediately available and frequently used source of information on the safe and proper use of medicines as well as general health matters.
The pharmacist supervises the compounding and dispensing of prescriptions, the supply of medicines and the sale of poisons. Increasingly, pharmacists are called upon for advice on the health services, family planning, drug misuse and abuse, and other related topics. Community pharmacists represent the final link with the public for both prescribed and non-prescription drugs and medicines. Professional control is necessary since the patients' needs must be matched to safe and effective treatment.
