    In 53.2% of drug committees, a pharmacist holds the position of chairman, followed by medical specialists (32%) ; (clinical) pharmacologists hold this position in only 7.7% of the general hospitals, but in almost 50% of the university hospitals.

    In most cases, all clinical specialities are represented in the drug committee, the number of members ranging between 5 and 40 (median 12). (...)
