About The School of Pharmacy
The School of Pharmacy was established in 2000 G.C (1993 E.C) as part of the College of Medicine and Health Sciences at the University of Gondar (UoG), becoming the first school to train pharmacy professionals in Northern Ethiopia and the third in the country. In 2000, the school began training pharmacy students at the diploma level, and in 2002, it began a four-year program leading to a bachelor’s degree in pharmacy (B.Pharm.). The School conferred the B.Pharm. degree to 49 students for the first time in July 2007. After that, the school managed to become one of the highest ranked School of Pharmacy in the country , with aspirations of becoming one of Africa’s top ten pharmacy schools. In addition to the five-year bachelor program, the School of Pharmacy currently offers three Masters Programs: M.Sc. in Pharmacology, M.Sc. in Clinical Pharmacy, and M.Sc. in Pharmaceutical Supply Chain Management. The school is planning to launch Ph.D. in Pharmacology and M.Sc. in Pharmacognosy in the upcoming academic year. The school collaborates closely with a variety of stakeholders, including but not limited to a local pharmaceutical supply agency, a pharmaceutical regulatory body, a number of community pharmacies, Gondar University Specialized Hospital (a 900-bed teaching hospital), and various research institutes in Ethiopia. Research at the School of Pharmacy encompasses Integration of traditional medicine with conventional therapy, patient medication adherence, rational medication use, medication management, effectiveness and safety of medications, health/pharmaceutical supply chain management, pharmacoeconomic evaluation, pharmacological evaluation of natural products, excipient development, medicinal and natural product chemistry.
