Introduction

Pharmacy, along with medicine and nursing forms the backbone of our health care system. We cannot afford to be left behind other developing nations in providing quality drugs to our masses and professional manpower to our health care institutions. We have to cater to the needs of this system by producing well qualified, professionally trained and highly competent pharmacists to perform the specialised tasks in their specific areas of activity, such as drug design, synthesis, manufacturing, quality assurance, marketing and supply system, procurement, storage, distribution and use of drugs in industry, hospital setting or in community practice. In all advanced health care systems the support of a clinical pharmacist, who is a drug therapy consultant and drug information specialist, is considered vital. Realising the importance of Pharmacy education, Ziauddin University started its 5-year Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D) programme in January 2005. The Pharmacy institution of Ziauddin University is following the curriculum approved by Higher Education Commission (HEC) & Pharmacy Council of Pakistan (PCP) based on the semester examination system. This is an accredited and recognised programme of Pharmacy Council of Pakistan.
The programme provides students with core knowledge, skills, abilities, attitudes and values that are necessary to the provision of Pharmaceutical care. The professional courses in the Pharm.D curriculum consist of didactic material, laboratory courses , and practical experience in the patient care environment.

Goals

Ziauddin believes in “professionalism”. The key values include acting in a patient’s interest, responsiveness to the health need of society, maintaining the highest standards of excellence in the practice of Pharmacy and in the generation and dissemination of knowledge. In addition to knowledge and skills, pharmacists should present psychosocial and humanistic qualities such as caring, empathy, humility and compassion, as well as social responsibility and sensitivity to people’s culture and beliefs. We believe that all these qualities are required to ensure safe and effective medication use which can be achieved through the design of educational programmes.

Scope / Aim

Today, a Pharmacist’s attention is directed towards the patient, his environment, and his state of general well-being. The profession has undergone a transformation whereby both practice and teaching of this area has been placed on more quantitative, rational and scientific bases, so much so that the Drug Orientated Pharmacy has now attired itself to Patient Oriented Pharmacy in United States and Canadian Universities. Accordingly, Pharmacy Council of Pakistan (a subsidiary body of Ministry of Health, Government of Pakistan) which is regulating Pharmacy education in Pakistan felt the global changing trends and therefore adopted a 5-year Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D) programme instead of 4-year B.Pharm programme in 2004 all over Pakistan.

What’s New For 2017

Job Fair 2017
Ziauddin Faculty of Pharmacy has been actively engaged in organizing and facilitating its graduate through campus recruitments and job fair. In the year 2017 a job fair will be conducted, inviting leading Pharmaceutical and Health care individuals to ensure better exposure for graduates & under graduates.
Training Course For Community Pharmacists
Community pharmacists have always been involved in providing solution and ensuring health related problems. Keeping this in mind, Faculty of Pharmacy has planned to launch a training program which will help to groom pharmacists in the field of community pharmacy.

Workshops, MOU Signing With Pharmaceutical Industries To Boost-Up Research
Considering the fact that research is vital step in improving quality and knowledge, MOU will be signed with leading Pharmaceutical Companies to facilitate the students and Post-Graduates to boost up research and to help them in their research projects. It will also be beneficial in creating linkage between the Pharmaceutical industry and academia.

Vision Statement

“To be a global leader in pharmacy education, research and practice with the ultimate goal of providing excellent, innovative patient care and drug development.”

Mission Statement
