Real-world holistic Pharmacy programme
Pharmacy is an evolving profession with a major shift towards patient care, where the pharmacist’s role is in pharmacotherapy and the ensuring of the achievement of therapeutic end-points. We at QIU envision our graduates to be prepared for pharmacy practice in the industry, which includes pharmaceutical quality assurance, community pharmacy, research and development of drugs and pharmacy management.
The Pacific University PharmD programme is fully accredited by the American Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education. Participants in these programmes will receive guaranteed conditional admissions to Pacific University’s School of Pharmacy’s PharmD programme, pending completion of bridge programme requirements. Pacific University is a private university in Forest Grove, Oregon, USA. Founded in 1849 as the Tualatin Academy, the university’s original Forest Grove campus is 23 miles west of Portland.
On successful completion of the Bachelor of Pharmacy (Hons) Programme, students need to undergo a one-year housemanship and pass a pharmacy law examination before being registered as a pharmacist and given an annual practising licence.
Students are also required to complete 1 year of compulsory service with the government. A registered pharmacist practices mainly in academia, research, hospitals, community pharmacies, the pharmaceutical industry, the military and the veterinary industry. A pharmacist can specialise in many areas such as Clinical Pharmacy, Pharmaceutical Analysis, Pharmaceutical Operations, Quality Assurance and Regulatory Affairs, Pharmaceutical Technology and Pharmaceutical Biotechnology.
The QIU Bachelor of Pharmacy (Hons) programme will inculcate you with the desire for life-long learning and equip you with the knowledge, skills, attitude and experience to become an expert in all aspects of medicines.
