Your first year will focus on the core elements of the pharmaceutical sciences. These include pharmacology, but also physiology and cell biology. You’ll build on those with classes in pharmaceutical chemistry and the basis of formulating and synthesizing various drugs.
With that understanding of the basics, you will begin to learn practical subjects such as drug engineering and development. Your theoretical learning will continue with modules on clinical pharmacy, pharmacology and human physiology, as well as the basics of immunology and evidence-based medicine.
Your third year will largely be focused on diagnostic skills, toxicology and clinical pharmacokinetics, but you will also explore the advances topics of pharmacogenetics, biotechnology and pharmacoeconomics.
In your last year of the program, you’ll explore advanced pharmacy services, personalized patient care and the principles of prescribing medicines. You will also study healthcare research methodology and conduct your own individual research project.
