Pharmacy Program
Welcome to the Department of   Pharmacy at Oman Medical College, Bousher Campus. The  
department is offering a four year program leading to the Bachelor of Pharmacy degree after  
completion of the foundation program. The college is in academic partnership with West Virginia  
University, USA and has been approved by the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Higher  
Education. Our vision is to be recognized nationally and internationally for quality education in  
pharmacy and research in pharmaceutical and health-related topics. Our graduates are prepared  
to play a key role in improving the health of Omanis and other people by providing patient care  
and improving therapeutic outcomes.

In the final year after the completion of all required courses, the students spend 15 weeks of professional training which  
involves 7 weeks in a community pharmacy, 7 weeks in a hospital pharmacy and 1 week of industrial training. Before  
beginning their clinical rotations the students are given a white coat and recite the Oath of a Pharmacist during a  
traditional White Coat Ceremony. In academic year 2013-2014. an students exchange program was initiated with West  
Virginia University./ In October of 2013, 4 students from Oman Medical College spent 4 weeks training in pharmacy  
practice in the WVU hospital.  In January 2014, 3 Pharmacy Doctorate students from WVU spent four weeks at OMC  
training in the Royal Hospital and the Directorate General of Pharmaceutical Affairs of the Ministry of Health to learn  
about pharmaceutical care in Oman.

The Pharmacy department has successfully organized Pharmaceutical conferences in 2009, 2010 and 2013 and is planning  
to host the next conference in 2015. These conferences involve presentations by internationally known  
pharmacist/scientists as well as local pharmacists and provide an opportunity for our faculty and students to interact with  
pharmacists from many countries.
All students in the Pharmacy program complete a research project under the supervision of a member of the faculty. Each  
project is summarized in a bound thesis followed by an oral presentation of the results along with background and  
discussion. Often the studies performed in the research projects have been presented at pharmaceutical conferences both  
in Oman and abroad. The research conducted by several students on a project has often resulted in the publication of
these results in well-recognized scientific journals.  

Excellent administrative support and encouragement from the management and deans has enabled the department to  
progress. Furthermore, the department is planning to start a Masters Program in Clinical pharmacy to provide clinical  
pharmacists that are needed in Oman.
I am very optimistic that the department of pharmacy will develop into a College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences  
encompassing other health science programs.
