Since its establishment, the Faculty of Pharmacy & Medical Sciences (FPMS) has remained a place for innovation and excellence in pharmacy education. With the changing needs of society and the profession, FPMS has updated the B.Sc. Pharmacy curriculum more towards the clinical aspects of the discipline. This has been achieved through the hybridization of the traditional aspects of the program with the more clinical courses; a fusion that meets the needs of the pharmacy profession requirements in Jordan and worldwide.
The FPMS always aspires to improve the quality of teaching and learning. Locally, the FPMS has been awarded the Quality Assurance Certificate from the Higher Education Accreditation Commission in Jordan, and internationally, the FPMS has been awarded The American Accreditation for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) Certificate.
The FPMS recruits highly qualified members of staff; indeed, most of our academic staff are graduates of renowned international universities. As for our graduates, they have secured careers in academia, the pharmaceutical industry, and the clinical sectors on the national, regional and international levels.
The delivery of our programs is strengthened by internationally recognized excellence in many areas of pharmacy research. We also believe in improving the necessary facilities for research. To this end, we have recently established the University of Petra Pharmaceutical Centre (UPPC) that is dedicated to research. The aim of establishing this Centre is twofold: (1) help the academic staff in the establishment of their research profiles; and (2) increase the opportunities of collaborative research projects at both the national and regional levels.
The FPMS strives towards excellence, in both teaching and research, within an applied clinical pharmacy environment that focuses on the career development of our graduates and the needs of the national and regional pharmacy industry.
