The Faculty of Pharmacy and Medical Sciences at University of Petra was established almost 20 years ago with a staff members of not more than 8 faculty members at that time.
In the year 2010 the faculty members are close to 35, seven of them are holding a rank of professor ship, and hoping two more of the faculty members will get their promotion to professor sometime 2011.
Whenever necessary the faculty is trying to update the curriculum for the benefit of the students. The policy of the Faculty is not to depend on part time lecturers, all faculty staff are full timers with different disciplines, and got their higher degrees from American or Western Universities. Teaching language at the faculty is in English.
The upper management at the University are great supporters to faculty needs, and all the time encouraged us to update our status.
The Ministry of Higher Education gave us a permission in the year 2006 to open a master program in Pharmaceutical Sciences which became the first Private Faculty of Pharmacy which had the permission for post graduate studies.
Finally to succeed in your mission, all elements should co-operate for the benefit of our graduates.
