Pharmacy Message from the Coordinator

Thank you for visiting the Nile College’s Pharmacy Programme website. As Coordinator, I am proud to share with you information about our programme, staff and students.

To improve our student’s education, we continually revise the curriculum and experiential activities to assure optimal educational outcomes. We are committed to make sure that each of our graduates has the scientific and biomedical background to be integrated into pharmaceutical and clinical skills and practices required for the provision of outstanding pharmaceutical and healthcare services in a patient-oriented setting and to utilize the broad scope of practice found locally, regionally and internationally.

Pharmacy is a complex, exciting profession and is an integral part of the interdisciplinary healthcare environment. The responsibilities and scope of practice of the pharmacist continues to change. This requires a serious commitment to life-long learning in order to best serve the public interest.

To succeed with pharmacy’s inevitable change, part of our mission is to prepare our students for life-long learning.  They are being given the tools to be leaders in pharmaceutical care, to manage drug therapy, and to counsel patients on the proper use of medications.
