About PTU

Training students during their study and throughout their training period for the Bachelor of Pharmaceutical Sciences program and the internship year (APPE) for the Doctor of Pharmacy program is one of the main pillars of the educational process. It helps prepare and equip the students for their future jobs. In order to provide pharmacy training aligned with the ambitious vision of the Kingdom (2030) and the great effort it requires to ensure the training process is running smoothly, a specialized unit has been established to supervise the training process in the college. In addition, the unit coordinates the accreditation of continuing pharmacy education programs to serve the profession practitioners after they graduate from college.
