Course Description

Pharmacy is the science concerned with therapeutic substances – their discovery, origin and nature, their development into medicines and their use in disease prevention and treatment. Pharmacy also denotes the profession which uses its unique knowledge of medicines in the service of society.

A career in pharmacy can be versatile and highly rewarding. Pharmacy graduates can choose to work mainly with people, by using their unique knowledge and skills in patient care. Pharmacists supply medicines, provide medicines, health information and advice, and help to manage long-term illness. Pharmacy graduates can also choose to focus mainly on products – pharmacists hold key responsibilities in the Malaysian pharmaceutical industry and are in constant demand. Skilled graduates are needed in clinical research, in formulation research and development, production, quality assurance, regulatory affairs and marketing.
