Welcome to the School of Pharmacy at the University of Management and Technology Lahore.

The role of pharmacists in the health care systems worldwide has evolved significantly over the last two decades and requires pharmacists to play a key role as part of multidisciplinary healthcare teams in the delivery of an evidence-based safe, effective and quality healthcare to patients and public at large. This evolution in the role of pharmacists requires them to not only possess core and up-to-date scientific and clinical knowledge but also expects them to demonstrate strong ethical values, professional behavior with excellent communication, research, leadership, entrepreneurship and writing skills. Furthermore, pharmacists are expected to update their scientific and clinical knowledge on continuous basis, often known as continuous professional development (CPD). These expected attributes and competencies of pharmacists would allow them to pursue careers in pharmaceutical industries, hospitals, regulatory affairs, retail or community pharmacies, pharmaceutical marketing, academic, research and development and supply chain management.

Keeping in view the evolving role of pharmacists and the skills and competencies expected in the future, we are committed to providing quality and advanced pharmacy education to our students to help them prepare for new challenges. We would be employing a range of traditional and modern teaching, learning and assessment strategies to help our students develop various competencies.
