history of the Department

Pharmaceutical faculty and Department of General Chemistry were founded and developed simultaneously. However, it should be noted, that the names of disciplines and department name changing.

From 1 September 2000 in Horbachevskyi Ternopil State Medical Academy began lessons on the course of chemical-pharmaceutical, which at that time was part of the Department of Biology and Medical Genetics with disciplines Pharmacognosy (Head of the Department – candidate of Pharmaceutical Sciences, docent S.M. Marchyshyn). The course was led candidate of Chemical Sciences L.V. Vronska. N.I. Latsik and I.B. Ivanusa were laboratory assistants. The course is housed on Ruska street, 36.

In June 2001, the first academic year for students of Pharmaceutical faculty ended. It was second set of students who started education on two professions "Pharmacy" and "Clinical Pharmacy". Number of students increased, so number of disciplines increased too. Therefore course of chemical-pharmaceutical disciplines was reorganized into the department of chemical-pharmaceutical disciplines. From August to December 2001 head of Department of chemical-pharmaceutical disciplines was candidate of Chemical Sciences L.V. Vronska, and from December 2001 head of department was elected of Pedagogical Sciences, Professor L.M. Romanyshyna.

The teachers at that time: prof. L.M. Romanyshyna, candidates of Chemical Sciences L.V. Vronska, G.Y. Zagrychuk, O.V. Krykhovets, V.P. Bodrov, candidate of Biological Sciences M. M. Mykhalkiv, assistant N.I. Latsik. Laboratory assistants of department: I.B. Ivanusa, S.Y. Derevoriz, M.I. Boris, A.V. Ilyasov, O.S. Krys'kiv.

From 15.03.2005, the head of the Department of Inorganic and Organic Chemistry was appointed PhD G.Y. Zagrychuk.

In July 2006, number of students of Pharmaceutical faculty decreased, Department of Pharmaceutical Chemistry with analytical and toxicological chemistry was combined with Department of inorganic and organic chemistry in Department of pharmaceutical chemistry, which is attached Medical Chemistry courses for Ist year students of medical and dental faculties. Head of the department was doc. L.V. Vronska.
