The Department of pharmacy is committed to provide an environment of academic excellence and research, and social responsibilities that facilitate and propagate the acquisition of knowledge and skills related to the profession of pharmacy and the deciplines in pharmacy education.
It is the need of the region that the large number of students are insisting/demanding every year for admission in pharmacy from entire Sindh, as Shah Abdul Latif University is the only Institute in upper sindh that can cater the pharmacy education in upper sindh no private institute can carry out pharmacy education in upper sindh.Whereas,in Karachi there are about three private institutioins besides faculty of pharmacy ay Karachi university who approximately admit about 360-400 students every year.Also a large number of foreign students from more than 12 countries apply and get admission there.As per through survey a maximum number of foreign students in Pakistan are studing in institute of pharmacy university of sindh.
Keeping the population of rest of the sindh ecept Karachi we must admit about 60 students every year so that the long standing demand and due right could be justified.
