X. Explanations

Every course should carefully select and improve teaching methods; strengthen the training of basic theory, basic knowledge and basic skills; enhance the cultivation of self-study ability, practice ability, foreign language and computer application ability, and preliminary ability in scientific research; pay attention to an early contact with specialties, the infiltration between basis and specialties and strengthen the education of professional qualities. Lay stress on the imparting of knowledge of liberal arts and science, improve psychological quality and medical ethics; broaden students’ range of specialty and knowledge; pay attention to interpersonal communication, promote social adaptation and raise the integrate qualities of students.

1. Foreign language teaching: General foreign language adopts the system of grade teaching and requires that every student must pass the National College English Test Band Four.  Specialized foreign language teaching offers at least 10% of the class hour of foreign language studying for every courses as well as the course “Pharmaceutical English”. At least 10 common specialized foreign vocabularies should be introduced and used repeatedly within every class hours. At least 1 to 2 courses adopt foreign language textbooks or foreign language teaching in every semester.

2. Research ability training: Ability training for scientific research should be carried out through all links in the teaching process. In the period of basic course study, students studying with remaining strength are encouraged to take part in research activities outside class. During the specialty course study, training in research work can be carried out by combining specialty knowledge. Furthermore, social investigations with a quality of scientific research can be conducted in combination with holiday social practice.
