The prolonged and stressful jostling that people of the upper East Region do go through in an attempt to join the list of trained pharmacists, will soon be a thing of the past, as the region is set to commence its first pharmacy training school.
Kalamed College of Health Sciences was licensed early this year to train Medicine Counter Assistants (MCA).
Before the arrival of Kalamed College of Health Sciences, the Upper East Region was without a pharmacy school, thus imposing stress on interested persons as the only available option is for one to journey to the southern sector to be trained.
Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the school, Haruna Musah Kalamunlai, is optimistic that the school will be of relive to prospective pharmacists. For him, the unbearable pain that persons wishing to trained as pharmacists are usually subjected to will be the thing of the past.
A physician by profession, Mr Haruna, has called on the youth to take their education seriously as that is the only true way to success.
Speaking to The Herald, some health workers expressed concerns with the low level of training of most over-the-counter attendance and called on pharmacy owners to take advantage of the school to equip themselves.
