Dubai Pharmacy College (DPC), the first Pharmacy institute in the Gulf region which was established by the eminent philanthropist, Haji Saeed Bin Ahmed Al Lootah in 1992. It was founded with a vision to educate girls of the Emirate to successfully and confidently meet the dynamic challenges in the healthcare sector.
DPC fosters technological innovation, development & research; thus a manufacturing unit for Drugs has been set up. It facilitates the students to have a hands-on approach to drug manufacturing and delivery systems. Modern instructional laboratories facilitates learning advanced courses. In addition, spacious lecture rooms and a major research center are added advantages.
DPC helps talented Muslim girls to pursue their studies in a totally peaceful Islamic ambience. In addition to Islamic Fiqh classes, Islamic scholars from various universities give moral instructions which help the students to become virtuous Pharmacists who would make valuable contributions to the society. Meritorious students are awarded scholarships.
Keeping pace with the present emphasis on English in academic settings we enroll students who have cleared TOEFL/IELTS. However, if they do not attain the stipulated requirement in the standardized English tests, intensive coaching is given. An international team of dedicated and committed lecturers maintains the quality of instruction. Periodic symposiums, seminars and practical projects such as the mandatory training in hospitals, community pharmacies and pharmaceutical companies are organized. Educational trips always accompanied by professors are conducted from time to time. Visiting professors and academics are also invited from pivotal healthcare institutions, industries and hospitals.
Needles to say, we offer career driven-skills based curricula. Consequently, the aspiring Pharmacists have to undergo an intensive six months internship in leading Hospitals & Primary Healthcare Centers – 1000 hrs of Professional Practice experience in the Department of Health Hospitals, Dubai. 100 hrs in Pharmaceutical Industries and 300 hrs in Community Pharmacies. Such hands-on training helps the students in getting a thorough knowledge in the related areas of study.
Eventually, the undergraduate students are well prepared to step out of the portals of the College as competent drug control inspectors, community pharmacists, or pursue research in the field of manufacturing, analytical controlling, marketing & administration in the ever growing, highly competitive pharmaceutical industry. To top it all, the stress-free friendly aura of the College helps the students to put forth their best.
In recognition, our College is accredited and licensed by the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research, UAE in 1998 and also endowed with the Dubai Appreciation Award in 2004. So, the Degree program has worldwide recognition. Most of our alumni are well placed or working towards Doctorate /post Doctorate Degrees (Pharm.D) in the US, UK, Canada, India, Egypt, Sudan – this stands a testimony to all our accomplishments.
Uniquely positioned in the Lootah Educational Campus at Muhaisnah-1, Dubai, it is within easy access for students not only from Dubai but also from Sharjah and Ajman. The hostel, a boon for the boarders, is well-furnished with all the required facilities such as health club, tennis court, swimming pool, its just like a home away from home.
