Up until the third year, students will focus on the pharmaceutical sciences, learning basic subjects like chemistry, physics and biology. This will equip students with the skills required to understand state of the art medicine as well as medical ethics and drug therapies.

From the fourth grade onwards students will study subjects more closely related to medical care and will also undertake additional courses between September and November to prepare them for practical clinical training held during their fifth year. A common pharmaceutical test will be held in December and January of the fourth year and those who pass will be allowed to undertake practical clinical training. This will then be followed by designation of graduation research work and laboratory assignments. During the fifth year students will undertake a five-month practical clinical training. In addition to the one-month practical training given at the University Hospital, students will see out their five-month training in local hospitals and pharmacies. Students will be given high-level instruction from trained pharmacists and will participate in the Policlinic alongside medical students as pharmacists in training.

During the sixth year further advanced medical pharmacy subject will be undertaken and students will begin to involve themselves in drug development. This curriculum will give the students a chance to study at a high level and will culminate with the presentation of a graduation thesis, covering the complete content of all research works.

After completing this curriculum students will have qualified to sit for the National Pharmacists Examination. We are currently planning to establish a four-year doctorate course at the graduate school.
