The training of the pharmacist in Switzerland is regulated by Federal law. University studies extend oyer a period of 10 semesters: a candidate who passes the Iinal examinations receives the Federal Diploma of Pharmacy and can freely exercise his profession anlrwhere in Switzerland. The knowledge he has acquired prepares him to work first and foremost as a community pharmacist.
Specialization can be acquired in the course ofpost-graduate studies, or also may be started by taking optional courses during university studies. Certain university-related institutions offer the necessary courses for post-graduate specialization; it is possible to achieve a Ph D or Pharm D after two to three years of additional studies in basic or applied sciences related to pharmacy.
Although the titles of community pharmacist, hospital pharmacist or indus- trial pharmacist have so far not been ollicially recognized, specialization in any of these fields is in practice a reality today. The need for more extensive training has signalled an important change in the profession in recent years.
