Introduction

Pharmacy is a life saving healthcare profession. In recent times, paradigm shift in the national and international healthcare systems have fuelled desire to upgrade the medical services in a modern healthcare system. This concept has also revolutionized the service providing approach of the Pharmacy profession which has now developed into a multi-disciplinary profession. Currently, due to various health related issues there is need to develop new potent synthetic and biotech drugs as well as new drug delivery systems. This has substantially shifted the responsibility of Pharmacists towards appropriate use of modern medicines so as to ensure optimum drug therapy and protecting the public from associated adverse drug reactions. It is therefore necessary to prepare and groom Pharmacists for future professional responsibilities and challenges. The Department of Pharmacy was established in the GC University, Faisalabad in the year 2005. It was upgraded to College of Pharmacy in 2010 and Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences in 2014. The Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences is offering Pharm.D (5 years), Mphil and PhD in Pharmacology and Pharmaceutics degree programs.
