Introduction

In response to the changing health care environment, Pharmacy as a profession is continually evolving to expand its scope of services and responsibilities to meet the needs of patients, health care systems, and other professionals. Traditionally, the primary responsibility of the pharmacist was the safe and accurate dispensing of drugs prescribed by the physician.  Today, pharmacists are involved in the clinical care of their patients. To face the challenges in the practice of pharmacy in Singapore and abroad, pharmacists have to 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 train pharmacy practitioners to possess leadership qualities, advanced expertise and clinical experience that enable them to be at the forefront of the Pharmacy profession and health care in a variety of settings - institutional, community practice, government, academia, industry, translational research and drug development. The curriculum emphasizes a patient-centered course of study and involves a structure that will enable the students to develop into reflective practitioners with skills and attitudes to evaluate critically and modify practices in a timely and effective manner.
