Faculty of Pharmacy

Faculty of Pharmacy, Health Sciences Center, PO Box 24923
13110, Safat
Kuwait

Our faculty accepted its first class of 32 full-time students into the first year of its Bachelor’s degree of Pharmacy in September 1997. The faculty currently offers a five-year curriculum with mixed classes (male and female) for 60 students per year, and most graduates go on to serve at the Ministry of Health as professional pharmacists.

The faculty has four established departments with appointed chairmen: Pharmaceutical Chemistry, Pharmaceutics, Pharmacology and Therapeutics, and Pharmacy Practice. A fifth department of Clinical Pharmacy is in the process of being created to recruit clinical pharmacist that will contribute to a two-year PharmD add-on program expected to start in 2016, and, at a later stage, to an entry-to-practice PharmD curriculum.

Each department conducts world-class research, using state-of-the-art equipment. A Master degree in Pharmaceutical sciences is offered since this fall (2014) to better support the development of our research capacity and to mentor young scientist development.

Our Faculty is composed of exceptional men and women committed to excellence towards our mission, thus contributing to the advancement of pharmacy knowledge, education and practice in Kuwait.
