What our students say...

i

Professionals who Hand out Advice, Not Just Drugs

Pharmacy is a multidisciplinary subject, covering a wide range of fields such as pharmaceutics, medicinal chemistry, pharmacy practice and law, biochemistry, and herbal medicines, etc., and a pharmacist does a lot more than distributing prescribed drugs: they advise patients, doctors, and nurses on drug use and dosage, as well as engage in research and pharmaceutical production. This programme prepares graduates for a successful career in any healthcare setting by emphasizing problem solving, decision making, critical and creative thinking built upon a strong foundation of basic knowledge and skills.

The School ensures that every pharmacist-to-be is equipped to face real-life workplace challenge. Students also have the opportunity to participate in overseas pharmacy exchange programmes.
