Department of Pharmacy


Pharmacy is a multidisciplinary field and has the potential to bring about revolutionary changes in substantially increasing pharmaceutical production and alleviation of diseases. Pharmacy, being a life saving profession and is one of the best marketing segments, playing an indispensable role both in human health care system and the nation's economy.
Going to clinical aspects of the profession, we have launched 5-years Pharm-D (Doctor of Pharmacy) Program (Credit Hours 192) as per the requirements of Pakistan Pharmacy Council. Three batches of our Pharm-D Condensed program students have been successfully completed their courses and accommodated at all the teaching hospitals of the province for training.
Research is the basic requirement of any good educational institution, where both the students and teachers (researchers) see the science in its real sense. The department has launched postgraduate study program as well. At the initial phase we have started M. Phil Program but in near future we have also planned to launch Ph.D. program. Our department is in the initial stages of development and needs to be in collaboration with relatively more developed institutions of the country. To meet the present day challenges, interdisciplinary integration with other professions is necessary. For this purpose, we are also focusing on University (Department of Pharmacy) and industries links. At the initial phase we are linked / affiliated with Medicraft Pharmaceuticals Peshawar and Usawa Pharmaceuticals, Risalpur Nowshera with motive that the linkage will be expanded with passage of time.
The Department has experienced, professionally competent and qualified faculty members including three Ph.D.(One Foreign Faculty Member) and three M.Phil. Seven Faculty members are abroad on study leave for Ph.D. under HEC faculty development program. Currently three Faculty members are Ph.D. Scholars while seven are enrolled for M.phil. program in Pakistan.
Department of Pharmacy has fully equipped laboratories for pharmaceutical chemistry, quality control, microbiology, dispensing, pharmacognosy and pharmacology. On the whole, our aim is to produce quality Pharmacy graduates so that they may accomplish their tasks successfully to the best of their competencies in the better interest of the humanity.
