The "Dr. Pharmacist, Pharm. D" Program at BZU is now accredited by the Accreditation and Quality Assurance Commission at the Palestinian Ministry of Higher Education. This comes two years after receiving conditional approval for the Program.




BZU Dean of the Faculty of Nursing, Pharmacy and Allied Health Professions, Dr. Tamer Eisawi, noted: "The Ministry of Education previously set conditions for accreditation regarding teaching staff, educational laboratories and training, all of which the Faculty has managed to fulfill." He added that the program requires a six-year study period (210 hours) in basic science, pharmacy and clinical training in hospitals.

The Dr. Pharmacist Program was launched in the 2010-2011 academic year with the view of meeting the challenges facing international career development, in terms of the pharmacist’s academic and practical qualifications. As a member of an integrated medical care team, the pharmacist plays a vital role in the delivery of quality health care.

During the past two years, the Program has accepted a significant number of students. The third cohort will enroll by the beginning of the 2012-2013 academic year.
