The Doctor of Pharmacy program at Gulf Medical University (GMU) is the first and only PharmD program in the country. The aim of the program is to prepare and graduate professional pharmacists who are drug therapy experts. Starting with a solid foundational knowledge base in biomedical and pharmaceutical sciences in the initial phase, students quickly and smoothly move into the pharmacy practice and clinical pharmacy phase of the program. Professional skills labs offer an opportunity for clinical simulations and roleplay preparing our students for early exposure into the real practice environment.
The Doctor of Pharmacy program offers GMU students both introductory and advanced pharmacy practice experiences in GMU affiliated hospitals, clinics and community pharmacies. Despite the large number of healthcare facilities that are affiliated with GMU, the College of Pharmacy has developed key partnership with other hospitals including Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi and Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Hospital Ajman. These diverse experiences in such advanced healthcare practice environments provide our graduates with the needed pharmacy practice skills required to succeed as they move on to be professional pharmacy practitioners anywhere in the world.
