B Pharma.

Introduction:

The establishment of a modern pharmacy program is a unique idea leading to a creation of complementary biomedical disciplines, which will be a model for integration of health care education as well as for inter-disciplinary research. This will enable pharmacy students to study certain subjects of clinical nature. Such studies and clinical rounds would increase contact and mutual acceptance of the respective knowledge and will ensure the acceptance of the future pharmacist as an integral member of the healthcare team.

To keep peace and to meet the changing needs and demands of the society and profession the pharmacy program is embarking on a teaching program to enable hospital settings. both the theoretical and practical courses intended to provide the opportunity for students to gain greater experience in patient –centered learning environments and to work co-operatively with other health care practitioners as practicing members of the health care team, it is the goal of the program to prepare pharmacists who can assume expanded responsibilities for the clinical use of drugs and assist in the provision of rational drug therapy.

The course is structured to provide an excellent education for future pharmacists on the basis of a sound inter –disciplinary science degree course built on bridging chemistry and biology.

This program aims to: –

  1. Provide a sound scientific foundation on which the graduate can base an effective career as pharmacist.
  2. Provide a breadth of instruction and experience so that the graduate will be able effectively to apply the acquired scientific understanding in their chosen branch of pharmacy and as well as to set their knowledge of pharmacy in the wider social and scientific context.
  3. Develop the ability of the student to learn, to work effectively both independently and as a member of the health care team, to design and carry out experiments, to assemble, analyses and assimilate information and to disseminate information effectively for other health care providers.
  4. Development of research capabilities.
