BACHELOR OF PHARMACY (HONS)

JPT/BPP(MQA/FA3618)11/20

Pharmacy is the branch of health sciences dealing with the delivery of pharmaceutical care and the preparation, quality assurance, dispensing and proper utilisation of medicines.  Pharmaceutical care is the responsible provision of drug therapy for the purpose of achieving definite outcomes that improve and maintain a patient’s quality of life.

Pharmacists are in high demand and are among the highest-paid professions upon graduation and registration. The current pharmacist-population ratio in Malaysia is about 1: 2500.

The 4-year Bachelor of Pharmacy Programme will train undergraduates in basic medical sciences, pharmaceutical sciences and patient-focused sciences as well as pharmacy practice areas.  Skills required of a pharmacist will be acquired via lectures, tutorials, laboratory work, problem-based learning and clinical clerkship as well as attachments to practice areas such as community pharmacy, industry pharmacy and hospitals.  In hospitals, the pharmacist’s role includes patient-based clinical services.

On successful completion of the Bachelor of Pharmacy (Hons) Programme, students need to undergo a one-year housemanship and pass a pharmacy law examination before being registered as a pharmacist and given an annual practising licence.

Students are also required to complete 1 year of compulsory service with the government. A registered pharmacist practices mainly in academia, research, hospitals, community pharmacies, the pharmaceutical industry, the military and the veterinary industry.  A pharmacist can specialise in many areas such as Clinical Pharmacy, Pharmaceutical Analysis, Pharmaceutical Operations, Quality Assurance and Regulatory Affairs, Pharmaceutical Technology and Pharmaceutical Biotechnology.

The QIU Bachelor of Pharmacy (Hons) programme will inculcate you with the desire for life-long learning and equip you with the knowledge, skills, attitude and experience to become an expert in all aspects of medicines.
