DOCTOR OF PHARMACY
To achieve higher professional education and aspiration to become a true professional is the right of every young student. Keeping this objective in mind many universities and colleges are working in the developed as well as underdeveloped countries. Unfortunately this trend of operating in education sector as a private venture was never dreamed of in Pakistan. Since last few years private sector has very successfully contributed to the expansion of education and has greatly fulfilled the aspirations of the young students and their parents. This phenomenon however, did not spring up in the scientific education. The number of young Pakistanis who pass F.Sc. and B.Sc. examinations goes into tens of thousands. Those who pass this examination securing very high grades have to often pass through the depression and frustration of not getting admission and entering into a profession of their choice.
As such a full generation of young students is not only at a total loss as individuals but also a big national loss. The purpose of introducing Doctor of Pharmacy Program is to prepare clinically oriented pharmaceutical scientists, as well as to train them for community and industrial pharmacy.
The benefits of Pharma D Degree program are many folds. The student can develop an appreciation and aptitude in the profession and research. A further advantage of Pharm. D degree in the pharmaceutical sciences is that the individual would have attained a much broader range of pharmaceutical knowledge and clinical experience. The net result of this is an individual better prepared for research in the pharmaceutical Sciences with a greater potential to rapidly move upward in the Pharmaceutical industry or academia. The past decade has witnessed major advances in the pharmacy practice, drug discovery, pharmaceutical
technology, and regulatory affairs of pharmacy.
