    The Pharmacy Council of Ghana, the body in charge of pharmacy practice regulation, last Wednesday, 22nd June, inducted 351 newly qualified pharmacists into the Pharmacy Profession at a colorful ceremony held at the auditorium of the Ghana Academy of Arts and Sciences. The theme for the induction was Consolidating Good Pharmaceutical Care through Patient Counseling & Public Education”.

    Delivering the keynote address, the Hon. Minister for Health, Mr. Alex Segbefia said, “Pharmacy practice has evolved from compounding, supply and dispensing of medicines to the provision of pharmaceutical care which has the patient at the centre of all pharmacists do.” He tasked the Pharmacy Council to be effective in regulating the pharmaceutical industry.

    The Registrar of the Pharmacy Council, Pharm. Joseph K.N. Nyoagbe told the inductees that the airplane to success in the practice of pharmacy was professionalism. Pharm. Mrs. Amah F. Nkansah who represented the various preceptors who had taken the newly inducted pharmacists through practical and experiential training during their internship charged them to be innovative.

    Chairperson for the event, Pharm. Mrs. Martha Gyansa-Lutterodt, Chief Pharmacist and Director of Pharmaceutical Services of the Ministry of Health charged the newly inducted pharmacists to employ professionalism and ethics in all they do.

    The overall best candidate in the 2015 Ghana Pharmacy Professional Qualifying Examination, Pharm. Victor Ofori-Antwi, was symbolically decorated with a Pharmaceutical Society of Ghana (PSGH) branded pharmacy overcoat by the President of the Society, Pharm. Thomas Boateng Appiagyei.

    Following the event, the President of the PSGH hosted the inductees to a post-induction lunch at the PSGH Secretariat on the Spintex Road.
