Our vision as Eastern Mediterranean University Faculty of Pharmacy is to grow qualified and conscientious professionals who work in line with universal criteria of pharmacy profession, show respect towards their profession, work towards the benefit of the society, possess analytical thinking and work effectively in a team in the scope of pharmaceutical sciences and community health.

Education

Putting considerable focus on laboratory applications, Eastern Mediterranean University Pharmacy Faculty consists of the following departments and units:

Department of Pharmacognosy and Pharmaceutical Botany Department – Department of Pharmacology - Department of Pharmaceutical Chemistry - Department of Pharmaceutical Toxicology - Department of Pharmaceutical Technology

During the 5-year program, in order to graduate, students are required to perform their internship practice in the areas of pharmacy, hospital pharmacy and industrial pharmacy for a minimum period of 6 months.

Facilities

Having been designed in accordance with the program requirements and objectives, laboratories housed by EMU Pharmacy Faculty contain the latest technical and physical features and provide educational and research-related services. The labs can cater for 270 students at the same time. The program also offers an independent microscopy lab for students’ individual use.
