We conducted a preliminary CAT as a pilot study to be developed and considered for implemented as a certified worldwide exam in pharmacy faculties in the future.
Out faculty of Pharmacy developed and applied a CAT in the psychiatric clerkship. CAT has been implemented at the end of clerkship as an additional bonus exam and as a pilot study for considering such exam at our faculty in the future.
In general, there is a positive attitude of pharmacy students towards CAT. Most students were satisfied about different evaluation points related to this exam.
This preliminary CAT study showed positive attitudes among pharmacy students towards this type of exam. This result indicates that this preliminary conducted exam can be developed in the future to be sophistically implemented in pharmacy faculties as it has been successfully conducted in other disciplines.
