MyDispense impact in compensating summer field training course during COVID-19 pandemic
Background: COVID-19 pandemic lockdown has forced the summer training committee for pharmacy students at Umm Al-Qura University to start a simulation field training instead of the real field training in 2019-2020. This sudden change to remote learning and training has placed the pharmacy training and education system into an extraordinary experience that can have a great influence in the future. Objective: To assess summer training students' opinions on the impact of using MyDispense instead of real field training. Methods: A cross-sectional study using a survey targeted summer training of pharmacy students. Results: Around 220 students participated in answering the survey with a majority not satisfied with this kind of training. Furthermore, they needed more lectures and webinars to understand more about how to use this simulating application accurately. Conclusions: Students proposed to adjunct online and onsite learning together. However, further research should be explored to give a better view and understanding.
