Our department was founded in 1966, with the goal of nurturing pharmacy professionals to meet the needs of community and industry, and to contribute to knowledge development and technological progress within this field. Since then we have trained countless pharmacists and experts in pharmaceutical technology, becoming a primary source of community pharmacy personnel in Taiwan. Based on decades of experience in the training of pharmaceutical personnel, we have designed a curriculum that not only promotes a sophisticated knowledge of pharmaceuticals and clinical practice, but also encourages students to engage in interdisciplinary cooperation with teams from other fields of health care. We also work hard to improve our students’ foreign language skills, in order to enable them to engage with the study of pharmacy at an international level.
The objectives of our curriculum are to provide comprehensive professional training in pharmacy, in order to enable students to move smoothly into employment upon graduation. In addition to intensive training in core pharmaceutical knowledge, we offer modules in pharmaceutical care, pharmaceutical administration and the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry. We also cooperate with hospitals, community pharmacies, businesses and the University of Southern California’s summer internships, in order to promote our students’ specialist knowledge and practical ability.
Our master’s program emphasizes the development of practical pharmaceutical skills, providing training in both community pharmacy skills and research and development of pharmaceuticals. The research and development stream aims to cultivate personnel for the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, while the community pharmacy stream focusses on the training of high-level pharmacy care professionals for hospitals and community pharmacies. In keeping with the practical objectives of the program, the curriculum includes a high proportion of practical classes.
