Department of Pharmacy

Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy (4 years)

Pharmacy is the art and science of biological agents used as drugs for the prevention, diagnosis, cure, and treatment of diseases of man and animals. The study of pharmacy is founded on the identification, discovery, isolation, synthesis, and formulation of biologically active compounds for clinical use. However, the increasing complexity of pathological processes and health care delivery systems has expanded the role of pharmacists from the usual orientation to drugs to competencies in ensuring appropriate use of such agents by health care providers and patients. Pharmacists are not just experts on drug information but also authorities on drug use.

History

The University of Santo Tomas Faculty of Pharmacy is the first to offer Pharmacy in the Philippines. Founded in May 29, 1871 by virtue of the Modification of the Moret Decree. During the Spanish regimen the course took 6 years to finish, then was reduced to 4 years when the Americans took over. By 1926, the Faculty of Pharmacy was the first to accept female students. In 2006, the 5 year BS Pharmacy major in Clinical Pharmacy was offered that paved the way for graduates to venture into another promising field of Pharmacy practice.
