Moreover, 5 of our candidates are pursuing their higher education leading to a PhD in pharmacy. Furthermore the faculty is planning to send more distinguished candidates to top ranked universities worldwide, and in the mean time the faculty is looking for attracting many distinguished PhD holders based on its real needs in the future. The faculty also has high quality research and has always focused its priorities on excellence in teaching and research.

Currently the faculty offers a bachelor program (BSc) in pharmacy including two tracks: Industrial Pharmacy and Business Pharmacy with an enrollment of over 850 students.

The majority of our students plan to go on with their careers in governmental or private pharmaceutical sectors, academic fields or to lead scientific research in pharmaceutical industry. In keeping with this tradition, a strong teaching and leadership experience is an integral part of our program.
