Chairperson’s Message

Pharmacy is a noble and life-saving profession and Pharm-D is undoubtedly a prestigious and globally-accepted professional qualification for license of pharmacy practice anywhere in the world.

By the grace of Allah Almighty, our Pharm-D program is recognized by the Pharmacy Council and the Higher Education Commission, Pakistan (I, on behalf the Department, would express my sincere gratitude to the PCP, the HEC, and the University of Swabi team, esp. our Hon. Vice Chancellor, Prof. Dr. Imtiaz Ali Khan, for the concern they showed, the expertise they shared, the time they spared and the energy they spent in the best interests of the students and the society).

We believe that pharmacy education and practice must go hand in hand. We also believe in inter-disciplinary integration with other relevant professions and collaboration with other institutions and policy makers, both nationally and internationally, to provide our students an opportunity to build their skills, broaden their horizons and prepare for an exciting career in pharmacy.  For this purpose, the department has already signed MOUs with different universities, hospitals and pharmaceutical industries, for professional training and research projects, both at graduate and postgraduate levels and this linkage will be expanded with the passage of time.

As mentioned in the scope and career, our graduates get a broad spectrum of job opportunities in health and allied sectors; I, personally, would strongly encourage our graduates to be entrepreneurs and business leaders in the field and be employers rather than employees.

As a profession, Pharmacy is as rewarding as it is challenging and demanding. So, if you are ready to accept the challenge, curious and committed to acquire and apply the knowledge and skills, to be part of the healthcare team and want to contribute to the community, the doors of the Dept. of Pharmacy are open for you. Join and help us in our commitment to achieve our goals of giving our nation and the world qualified, competent and responsible Pharmacy professionals and scholars who bring pride to the institution, the profession and the nation.

We welcome you and wish you this entire journey enjoyable and rewarding.



Dr. Syed Muhammad Mukarram Shah
