When I was the student of the faculty of pharmacy of the Gomal University, then I observed the teaching style of the teachers which was entirely unique and I learned a lot from this university. The Faculty has been recognized as one of the most prestigious institutions of Pharmacy within the country and abroad. It has comparatively shorter but exciting history, dating back to 1975, when a dedicated Department of Pharmacy began delivering pharmaceutical education, first in the Government Science College at the City Campus and then in the Department of Chemistry at New Campus of the Gomal University. In the beginning the Department of pharmacy was conferring a three-year B-Pharmacy degree. Later on in 1980 the three-year Bachelor of Pharmacy Course was replaced with a Four-year post-Inter level degree accredited as equivalent to the Master Degree by the University Grants Commission (UGC). In 1983, the department moved to a purpose designed building on the University's New Campus. During the first decade of its life the Department grew fast in size and stature. Consequently, in 1990 it was upgraded to the current status of 'Faculty of Pharmacy' comprising four full-fledged departments viz. Department of Pharmaceutics, Department of Pharmaceutical Chemistry. Department of Basic Medical Sciences and Department of Pharmacognosy. Some of the unique features of my faculty which i can never include: 1.The facility of Digital Library provided by the Higher Education Commission (HEC) of Pakistan, currently subscribing to several thousand scholarly electronic journals. 2.ACADEMICS & RESEARCH FACILITIES - Some of the research areas being pursued at the Faculty include but are not restricted to the following. - Controlled Release Drug Delivery Systems - Protective Role of Glutathione and Metal Complexes - Synthesis & evaluation of metalo-element drug complexes - Anti-leishmanial Activities of Indigenous Natural Products - Studies on hypoglycemic drugs - Ethno-botanical and Natural Products. - Comparative studies on antihypertensive drugs.
