Accreditation of Dr. Pharmacist Program
The "Dr. Pharmacist, Pharm. D"
Program at BZU is now accredited by the Accreditation and Quality Assurance Commission at the Palestinian
Ministry of Higher Education. This comes two years after receiving conditional
approval for the Program.
BZU Dean of the Faculty of Nursing, Pharmacy and Allied Health Professions, Dr. Tamer Eisawi, noted: "The Ministry of Education previously
set conditions for accreditation regarding teaching
staff, educational laboratories
and training, all of which the Faculty has managed to
fulfill." He added that the program requires a six-year study period
(210 hours) in basic science, pharmacy
and clinical training in hospitals.
The Dr. Pharmacist
Program was launched in the 2010-2011 academic year with the view of meeting the challenges facing international
career development, in terms of
the pharmacist’s academic and practical qualifications. As a member of an integrated medical care team, the pharmacist
plays a vital role in the delivery of quality health care.
During the past two years, the
Program has accepted a significant number of students. The
third cohort will enroll by the beginning of the 2012-2013
