The School of Pharmacy at the Faculty of Health Sciences, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, is a young and dynamic school, offering a Bachelor's degree (B.Pharm), as well as a Master's degree in "Community Clinical Pharmacy and Regulatory Management." The School's advanced and innovative programs provide the skills and tools that will enable students to thrive in all areas of the contemporary world of pharmacy.
Over the past few years, we are witnessing rapid and fundamental
changes in the way the pharmacist's profession is perceived in Israel. The
pharmacist today has much greater responsibilities and plays a key role in
maintaining public health. In this role, pharmacists must acquire clinical and
regulatory knowledge and tools, which will assist them in facing the
professional challenges posed both by their roles as clinical healthcare
providers and by the managerial-regulatory environment of the pharmaceutical
industry and adjacent fields.
In response to this trend, the School of Pharmacy inaugurated a
unique and innovative Master's program (M.Sc.) in "Community Clinical
Pharmacy and Regulatory Management." The program prepares students for
these challenges, providing skills in consulting and pharmaceutical oversight
in both the private and the public sectors including private pharmacies,
pharmacy chains, hospitals and clinics. In addition the Master's program is responding
to the growing demand for pharmacists with knowledge in management and application
of regulatory processes in pharmaceutical companies, bio-tech firms, healthcare
organizations and institutional pharmacies. The program is founded on the provision
of theoretical knowledge and its application at the pharmacist's workplace and
is suited to working pharmacists.
In addition to the clinical emphases, the program aims to foster
excellence, as well as encourage students to continue in research focused on
basic and applied pharmaceutical developments towards advanced degrees. The
program is led by a team of lecturers from the fields of medicinal chemistry, pharmaceutical
sciences, and pharmacology.
The Faculty of Health Sciences at Ben-Gurion University of the
Negev is a leader in research excellence and scientific innovation, including
in multidisciplinary research and applied scientific developments. It is also
committed to community outreach, environmental responsibility, and the
development of the Negev.
We would be happy to provide further information on our programs.
