Doctor of Pharmacy Program
This program is a six-year curriculum leading to a Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm D). The degree requires 224 credits, plus 2,000 hours of professional practice institutions affiliated with the campus. Such a requirement is in accordance with the standard curriculum of the Pharmacy Council of Thailand. The students will then be certified for the national examination. This will therefore allow the degree holders to become licensed pharmacists.
The Doctor of Pharmacy program focuses on developing the student’s knowledge, skills, and expertise in pharmacy, namely production, analysis, and quality control of drugs, pharmacy service, pharmaceutical care, and pharmacy administration. The program also focuses on working co-operatively with a team of other professionals, especially doctors and nurses, to care for safe and effective drug usage with patients.

Each year, the faculty admits approximately 120 students to this program.
