Details of USIU Africa Pharmacy Course

The USIU-Africa Pharmacy program is designed for students who wish to pursue careers in different pharmacy practise settings, management and research. In particular, both the industrial and hospital arms of our program have been so enhanced as to bring out the best of knowledge, skills, ethics, values, style and success in our graduates. The program focuses on the development, application and effective management of Pharmaceutical technology as a fundamental tool of modern healthcare. This is why USIU-Africa has invested heavily in the best-equipped laboratories and libraries of any pharmacy program in the region. The Bachelor of Pharmacy Program is designed as per the requirements of the two accrediting bodies, the Commission for University Education (CUE) and the WASC Senior College and University Commission (WSCUC). The USIU – Africa Bachelor of Pharmacy is also accredited and regulated by the Kenya Pharmacy & Poisons Board.


The B Pharm programme at USIU – Africa is delivered through face to face learning and applying multimedia teaching strategies. This enables to model holistic professional pharmacists currently desired who measure up across the entire spectra of the Pharmacy profession from Pharmacy education, Clinical Pharmacy, Industrial Pharmacy and Pharmaco-economics. This is achieved by the expansive state of the art laboratories for different specialties well equipped for analytical work in areas of Chemistry – Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy, Flame photometry, Fourier Transform Infrared spectroscopy, Gas Chromatography, Elemental Analyzers, Poentiostat and Thermo-Gravimetry Analyser; Pharmaceutical Analysis – Polarimeter, digital tablet hardness tester, Disintegration/dissolution apparatus, HPLC: Physiology / Pathology/Anatomy – Kymographs, Opthamoscope, Power lab teaching system, electrocardiograms and the Langedorf among others. Additional teaching infrastructure like no other in the region entails a Pharmacy Skills Laboratory for students’ skills development in handling patients alongside a Research & Development Unit that mimics the pharmaceutical manufacturing set up.
