Students of Pharm.D are lucky to be a part of an institute with a large set-up of hospitals & clinical practice. To make the best use of this opportunity, we have given much emphasis on the clinical side of the profession which is the very soul of Pharm.D program.

No Pharmacy institution in the country has such an ideal situation for the training as Ziauddin University has.
This training enables the future Pharmacists to play a vital role in the improvement of the quality of healthcare in our society.
