NIETO-ACOSTA, Olga María; SUAREZ-PEREZ, Yania; DIAZ-MOLINA, Milena  y  ENRIQUEZ-LAZA, Judith Juliana. Assessing the Impact of the Master’s Degree in Clinical Pharmacy. Rev. Cubana Edu. Superior [online]. 2020, vol.39, n.2, e17.  Epub 01-Ago-2020. ISSN 0257-4314.

The Master’s Degree in Clinical Pharmacy is being offered at the University of Havana Institute of Pharmacy and Food (IFAL, according to its acronym in Spanish) since 1994. It is one of the oldest master’s degree programs, and for pharmacy graduates to study new developments in the areas of clinical pharmacy and patient-centered care. Taking into account that at the IFAL there is a methodology for assessing the impact of programs on all those involved, this work was aimed at using, for the first time, the methodology for assessing the impact of this master’s degree program in particular on 22 graduates (55 % out of graduates between 2011 and 2015), seven employers and 18 teachers. 44,44% of the indicators were assessed positively; 33,33 %, middling; and 22,22 %, negatively, with there being differences as for graduates’ workplaces, but without identifying tendencies. The results allowed the current situation of the program to be depicted from the perspective of those involved, and suggest five practical measures for improving it.
