Introduction

Pharmacy as a profession is continually evolving to expand its scope of services and responsibilities to meet the needs of patients in a rapidly changing healthcare system. Traditionally, the primary responsibility of the pharmacist was the safe and accurate dispensing of medications. Today, pharmacists deliver collaborative clinical care. To face the challenges in the practice of pharmacy in Singapore and abroad, pharmacists must be equipped with not only the knowledge, but also the skills, attitudes and values required to deliver high quality, consistent and safe treatments to patients in collaboration with other health care professionals.
The primary objective of the NUS Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) Programme is to enable pharmacy practitioners to be at the forefront of the Pharmacy profession and healthcare across a variety of settings - institutional, community practice, government, academia, industry, translational research and drug development. The curriculum emphasizes patient-centered care to developĀ  reflective practitioners with skills and attitudes to critically evaluate pharmaceutical care and modify practice in a timely and effective manner.
