In this study, we analyzed a questionnaire to determine student satisfaction regarding the training during hospital pharmacy practice. This study was conducted to evaluate the learnings during the hospital pharmacy practice course undertaken by students (n=33) enrolled at the Gyeongsang National University (GNU) College of Pharmacy in 2019. Moreover, we evaluated the apprenticeship of preceptors (n=29) with respect to the practical achievement of students who completed the hospital pharmacy practice course. The items in the student survey questionnaire were prepared by referring to the hospital pharmacy practice manual for preceptors designed by the Korean Association of Pharmacy Education. The survey comprised items of several categories and the results were compared based on the average score upon evaluating the performance of each item in these categories. The students gave high scores for parental injection prescription review and preparation, as well as safety management and outpatient prescription review and dispensing. For items of parental injection prescription review and preparation, hospital A received a score of 3.9±0.3 and hospital C received 5.0±0.0. For items of safety management outpatient prescription review and dispensing, hospital B received a score of 4.2±0.8. The students gave low scores in clinical pharmacokinetics practice, with hospital A, hospital B, and hospital C receiving 2.6±0.4, 2.2±0.2, and 3.7±0.9 respectively. The preceptor's evaluation of students showed high scores for the compounding and management of medications, with hospital A receiving 4.7±0.1 and hospital B receiving 4.7±0.1. Low scores were received for total parental nutrition practice, with hospital A receiving 3.8±0.6 and hospital B receiving 4.5±0.3. Especially, for the subitems of communication with medical teams, and preparing and sending feedback, hospital A awarded a score of 3.0±0.0, whereas hospital B gave 4.3±0.6 to the students. The results will contribute to understanding the quality of hospital pharmacy practice and preparing for the improvement of the program.
