Course Description

Pharmacists are the researchers, developers, producers, people who are trusted to give advice on drugs to all health professionals and persons who market drugs. The pharmaceutical industry is the most heavily regulated of all industries. This profession and this industry is the most heavily reliant on a code of ethics in its everyday practice. Pharmacists dispense prescription drug products and provide patient information services to consumers in hospitals, nursing homes, retail pharmacy departments and home care settings. Pharmacists consult directly with patients, or with their caregivers, explaining the proper use and storage of drug products and providing information on contraindications of drugs.

The University of Malaya Bachelor in Pharmacy [B. Pharm.(Hons)] prepares students for a professional career in community, hospital or industrial pharmacy and allied industries. Students undertake broad training in physical and biological sciences; knowledge of drugs and their effects, and the application of this knowledge to individuals; the ability to provide advice and pharmacy care to consumers; and a scientific approach that will permit critical appraisal of developments in pharmaceutical sciences. In an evolving health system subject to rapidly accelerating demands, pharmacists are embracing new roles and should be prepared to undertake continuing development of their professional skills. This four years course under semester system consists of 44 core pharmacy modules under four disciplines, Pharmacology/ Physiology, Pharmaceutical Chemistry, Pharmaceutical Technology, Pharmacy Practice and Clinical Pharmacy.

The research programmes encompass various areas of pharmaceutical sciences, including medicinal chemistry, natural products chemistry, drug action, drug delivery, and project related to clinical and pharmacy practice. To support these activities, the department is equipped with state-of-the-art research tools for biological chemistry, analytical chemistry and formulation research such as a pharmaceutical pilot plant facility for scale up experimental production of liquid and solid dosage forms and medium throughput biomolecular assays facility. These facilities are supplemented through collaborative work with international and local researchers in other countries and universities. University of Malaya also works closely with the local pharmaceutical industries.
