About College

The College of Pharmaceutical Sciences and Drug Manufacturing is one of the largest and oldest faculties of the Misr University for Science and Technology, which was established by Decree of the President of the Arab Republic of Egypt No. 245 of 1996.
The College of Pharmacy and Drug Manufacturing Provides an atmosphere that guarantees the provision of a distinguished pharmacist, as the role of the pharmacist in the field of health care in accordance with international standards is growing day by day.
Today’s pharmacist actively participates in the development of the treatment plan and is directly responsible for choosing the type of drug, the appropriate pharmaceutical form and determining the therapeutic dose. On the other hand, the pharmaceutical industries are characterized by the unification of international standards. In the field of pharmaceutical industries, as dictated by its civilized reality on the national, Arab and international levels, the pharmaceutical industries in Egypt are among the oldest industries and represent a promising field and growing job opportunities. Preparing the pharmacist to advance these tasks requires the development and implementation of an integrated educational plan that combines basic sciences and modern pharmaceutical sciences, and this is what is keen The College of Pharmaceutical Sciences and Drug Manufacturing ensures that the College’s vision is to be distinguished and academically accredited in pharmaceutical sciences at the local, regional and international levels.
In its mission, the college is committed to graduating a pharmacist in accordance with the national academic standards of reference that meets the needs of the local and regional labor market, advanced pharmaceutical manufacturing, and conducting innovative scientific research, starting with the search for modern medicines of plant or animal origin or those that are constructed in a laboratory, as well as an effective contribution to the development of the pharmaceutical industry. By using this modern technological means, in addition to the ability to provide community services, training, and scientific consultations within the framework of ethical values.
During the study, the student deals with advanced laboratory equipment and machines, in addition to the University Hospital, which meets the need for training in clinical pharmacy by the elite of academic specialists who are known for their competence.
It is worth noting that the student must successfully complete the study of at least 181 credit hours to graduate in addition to spending 100 training hours in a pharmacy or medical institution during the summer vacations for the years of study after the end of the third level and before starting the internship year. The student must also complete the internship year (an academic year meaning 9 months) after completing the academic years with training in a pharmacy or medical institution or research center.

Clinical Pharmacy Practise

Overview

The clinical pharmacy department, unlike the disciplines of pharmacy, is a comparatively recent and variably implemented form of practice of pharmacy. It encourages pharmacists and supports staff to shift their focus from a solely product-oriented role towards more direct engagement with patients and the problems they encounter with medicines. Over the past 25 years, there has been an emerging consensus that the practice of clinical pharmacy itself should grow from the collection of patient-related functions to a process in which all actions are undertaken with the intention of achieving explicit outcomes for the patient. In doing so, clinical pharmacy moves to embrace the philosophy of pharmaceutical care.

Vision

The clinical pharmacy department aims to achieve the overall goal of a clinical pharmacist by promoting the appropriate use of medicines and devices to ensure maximum clinical safety and efficacy of medicines. The goal is to balance the efficacy versus the risk of drug therapy for each patient. This also includes monitoring the therapy course and the patient’s compliance with therapy, minimizing the treatment expenditures borne by the national health systems and patients.

Mission

Clinical pharmacists play a vital role in rational use of medicines, identifying drug-related problems, contributing to medication reviews and therapeutic recommendations, and becoming the delivery of pharmaceutical care.

The delivery of pharmaceutical care is usually achieved via practical steps such as:

  1. Establishing the need for drug therapy.
  2. Administrating the medicine.
  3. Providing the medicine.
  4. Monitoring therapy.
  5. Patient advise and education.
  6. Evaluation effectiveness.

 

Fundamental knowledge

The clinical pharmacy department aims to give students of pharmacy an insight into many of the interrelated problems of drug therapy. It should always be emphasized that although a general approach to drug treatment can be drawn, the therapy of a given patient must be individualized.

In accordance with the university mission statement, the clinical pharmacy department aims to enable students to acquire the cognitive, interpersonal, psychomotor, and analytical skills necessary for competent, reflective practice and lifelong professional development for their working life. The study of clinical pharmacy will provide subject-specific knowledge and skills as well as key transferable skills.
