School of Pharmaceutical Sciences offers two programs to cultivate pharmacists who possess a high level of expertise and pharmaceutical scientists who demonstrate strong enthusiasm in conducting research. We also focus on providing students a cutting edge curriculum in a small group setting.
Program of Pharmaceutical Sciences (6-year course) aims to foster pharmacists equipped with specialized knowledge and wisdom while Program of Medicinal Sciences (4 year course) aims to foster pharmaceutical scientists equipped with a global perspective using the following distinctive features:
- To offer students to get an early start on their specialized education at the latter half of the first year along with premedical subjects.
- To offer students to learn in a small group: at the latter half of the third year, students are assigned to one of the laboratories that are limited within 5 students.
- To offer students to take inter-professional curriculum together with students from Schools of Medicine and Dentistry for their future engagement in a medical team.
- Program of Pharmaceutical Sciences (6-year system) is a course enabling students to acquire knowledge and skills as pharmacists while Program of Medicinal Sciences is a course enabling students to acquire knowledge and skills as pharmaceutical scientists or technicians.
