Abstract:
The present paper aims to highlight some particular aspects of pharmacy students training, focusing on the pharmacy
students’ attitude towards medicine, through cognitive and perceptive construction. The existence of such an attitude can lead
to the implementation of new viable strategies towards education and self-education. A questionnaire-based survey was
applied to pharmacy students of the Faculty of Pharmacy from Târgu Mureş, Romania, in 3 different stages of their academic
development (students from the 1st year, the 3rd and the 5th year), to probe their perceptions and attitudes towards medicines,
their use and value. The collected data was then processed and analysed and the responses interpreted usually in the sense
that differences seen are not random, but are the expression of the influence of the educational system and academic gradual
maturity on the student perspectives and perceptions. However, it is necessary for the pharmacy student to empower and
acknowledge, the effect of various perspectives on medicine, highlighting the effects that occur at cognitive level, according
to its educational status.
