Faculty of Pharmacy at University of Kalamoon was established in 2004 to be the first private pharmacy faculty in Syria. A strong start was made thanks to the founding masters who declared it the icon of University of Kalamoon and the pride of its medical faculties, and they were right in what they went to.
The faculty is proud of its graduate batches because of the high success rates they achieved and obtaining the first ranks in the unified national examination of pharmacy, because of their admission to higher studies in the country and abroad, and occupying important positions in various sectors of the pharmaceutical work, because they achieved high levels of satisfaction with employers reporting their performance through the faculty’s communication with graduates and their employers to identify KPIS performance appraisal sensors.
Since its establishment, the faculty has relied on academic plans outlined in solid scientific foundations and on an academic program that meets the NARS national standards and responds as much as possible to international standards, covering all knowledge areas in pharmaceutical sciences.
– Believing in the importance of scientific research, faculty of pharmacy has always focused on the graduation project, which takes a methodological dimension in terms of acquiring scientific and transferable experiences, as well as developing scientific writing skills by evaluating a graduation thesis prepared by 4-6 students participating on a specific scientific subject to develop team- work skills. This thesis is to be defended before internal and external governance committees. To support this approach, work is being done to create an incubating environment for scientific research in the faculty through laboratories equipped with the latest lab equipment, in addition to providing modern simulation programs in computer laboratories to support the practical aspects of some courses.
– Emphasis was also placed on the pharmacology attendant and training courses, where the student is subjected to a practical training program in pharmacies, laboratories and hospitals, consisting of 500 training hours, during which the faculty contracts annually with the best pharmacists in various Syrian governorates; that is to train its students with the implementation of an effective monitoring system in order to achieve the goal desired. Later on, the first virtual pharmacy in the country was opened which played a major role in training students, not forgetting the role of pharmaceutical laboratories in hosting our students; to see the process of drug manufacturing from the raw material to the final product, and their generous support for the virtual pharmacy, providing it with free samples. The pharmaceutical attendant period ends with the final collateral examination in which the Pharmacists Syndicate, representatives of some laboratories, and specialized professors from inside and outside the university participate.
From the very beginning, our faculty has endeavored to enhance scientific and knowledge cooperation with public and private pharmacy faculties, as well as scientific and trade union organizations and bodies by signing joint cooperation agreements that have been translated in many cases into executive agreements.
Also, Faculty of Pharmacy at University of Kalamoon has always held scientific events; we have had two conferences and five scientific days so far.
Another goal of the faculty is to hold a number of scientific and cultural activities for its students, scientific competitions, poster competitions, the best pharmaceutical product competition – scientific trips, cultural meetings … etc.
to conclude, We are all certain that we have worked hard to provide our students and alumni with the necessary knowledge that helps them to be in the fields of work and scientific research, and are sure that by the ethics of practicing the profession we have provided them with, they will play leadership roles servicing their country and their people to be an example in integrity and high morals.
A bachelor degree in pharmacy and pharmaceutical chemistry is given to our students after a 5-year study period, during which the student is required to pass 175 credit hours to obtain this leave in addition to 10 credit hours in pharmacology attendant, equal to about 500 hours of practicing in pharmacies and pharmaceutical laboratories to obtain the license in the required major.
