Message from the Dean

Dear colleagues, students and future students

The Faculty of Pharmacy at Kuwait University accepted its first class of 32 full-time students into the first year of the curriculum in September 1997. Today, after a preparatory year, the Faculty accepts 60 talented young women and men to complete the remaining four years of the Bachelor of pharmacy degree. Students (and pharmacists) can elect to continue for two more years and develop their clinical skills in the add-on PharmD. The Faculty also offers a master of science (M.Sc.) degree in pharmaceutical sciences, with sub-specialty in pharmacology, pharmaceutical chemistry or pharmaceutics. The Faculty relies on the dedicated teaching and research activities of a competent academic staff structured in four skillfully led departments:  pharmaceutical chemistry, pharmaceutics, pharmacology & therapeutics and pharmacy practice (which includes clinical pharmacy). The Faculty of pharmacy also relies on skilled and committed academic support staff, laboratory and research technicians, and support staff working in teams and in a friendly atmosphere.


Housed in the Health Sciences Center of Kuwait University in Jabriya, the Faculty of pharmacy has access to excellent teaching and research facilities and is constantly working to improve the student experience, both at the undergraduate and the postgraduate levels. The Faculty is currently engaged in an ambitious re-engineering of its pharmacy curriculum to provide the first competency-based entry-to-practice Pharm.D. curriculum in the Middle-East. Our vision is to be recognized as an outstanding innovative leader in pharmacy education and research, contributing responsibly to the continuous improvement of pharmaceutical services and patient-centered care within our community.


The Faculty of pharmacy, together with its dedicated student association, is very active and organizes several events, through its Office of consultation, studies and training. It is very much attuned to the needs of its community and strives to be relevant in its long and short-term education programs. Please take some time to browse through this website to discover some of our achievements and what we have to offer.
