DOCTOR OF PHARMACY DEGREE (PHARM.D)
The National Council for Tertiary Education (NCTE) and National Accreditation Board (NAB), in 2016, approved the introduction of a six year Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D) programme for Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology.
The six year Pharm .D. programme was approved on the recommendations of the Pharmacy Council of Ghana, the Ministry of Health and the West Africa Health Organization (WAHO). The programme aims at harmonizing the training of Pharmacists internationally and across the West Africa Region as well as enhance the clinical competence of Pharmacists in Ghana.
The Pharm. D. programme replaces the previous four (4) year Bachelor of Pharmacy programme that existed in the Country.
Notice is hereby being served to the general public and all stakeholders that the Pharm.D programme like its counterparts the (MBCHB), Doctor of Optometry and Doctor of Medical Laboratory Science (MLS.D), is a first degree professional programme and not a postgraduate degree and should be classified and treated as such.
