Pharmacy is a very dynamic field with ever evolving opportunities. Pharmacy education unit is a newly established unit within the College of Pharmacy that aims to develop future pharmacy scientists and leaders and keep them up to date with the changing practices in the profession. This unit serves to provide currently enrolled PharmD students and alumni from Alfaisal’s College of Pharmacy and other local colleges of pharmacy quality education and learning activities. The primary goal of these activities is to provide a much-needed support to both future and registered pharmacists by offering them learning and training opportunities that not only solidify existing knowledge but also expand the horizon of pharmacy professionals by sharing latest ground-breaking advances in every sector of the pharmacy profession. Another emerging endeavor of the unit is to promote the health and wellbeing of the community as a whole, a goal which would not be achievable without the valued involvement of our students, faculty, and staff.
