Our ability to embrace change and develop has been a key factor in our successful mission to lead in education, research and policy development that benefit patients, healthcare practice and the discovery and development of medicines.
Our success is measured by the success of our graduate and postgraduate students who are expected to innovate and shape advances in healthcare and the science of medicines. Our new Pharm D Programme was recently granted full kick-off approval by the National University Commission. This programme integrates patient-oriented clinical pharmacy practice into the traditional Pharmaceutical Sciences. ..
The Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences started as a Department in the Faculty of Science in 1967. Due to the civil war, which lasted from 1967 to 1970, the Department did not function until 1970. It later became part of the Faculty of Biological Sciences.
The first group of students numbering 14, graduated in 1974 and since that year more than 4,000 pharmacy (B.Pharm) graduates and 30 Bachelor of Science (B.Sc Combined Pharmacology/Biochemistry) graduates have been produced.
