ROLES IN HEALTH OF THE COMMUNITY
Graduated students shall pursue their dream career in the field of pharmaceutical sciences such as in the hospitals, clinics, community pharmacies (either to venture their own business or to be an employee), research and development and others. The role of pharmacists in the community is important in giving advice, counseling, patient education on the consumption of drugs, and help in addressing the issue of misuse of drugs.
On industrialisation, the government has agreed with the proposal by the Malaysian Industry Group for High Technology (‘MIGHT’) in identifying the pharmaceutical industry as one of the technology based industry, which the nation must venture into in order to achieve its target of becoming an industrialised country.
Based on the above factors it is imperative that the nation needs to increase the number of pharmacists in the country in order to offer more efficient pharmaceutical services both in the public and private sectors of Malaysia and the Muslim countries.
In its efforts to realise its vision, the Kulliyyah of Pharmacy has planned to pioneer the pilot plant project in its permanent building.
This project involves the establishment of a small scale pharmaceutical plant in the Kulliyyah that will be engaged in both teaching and manufacturing of some generic drugs.
