On behalf of the School of Pharmacy, University of Nairobi, it gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the School of Pharmacy web site.

The School is one of the four constituent schools of the College of Health Sciences. The School's strategic location within the national referral hospital, Kenyatta National Hospital, and in the capital city of Kenya, Nairobi, provides a favourable environment for residential and non-residential students training.

The School is charged with the mandate of providing holistic training and producing high caliber Pharmaceutical health care personnel, conducting research and being at the forefront of Pharmaceutical health care delivery. The School of Pharmacy is the pioneer pharmaceutical training institution in Kenya offering degree courses in pharmacy at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. The student population comprises Kenyan nationals and foreign student constituting 3%. It has a large base of influential alumni. In this respect the School holds a special place nationally and regionally and inevitably its traditions and systems tremendously influence operations of the pharmaceutical education and practice.

The School has a well-established track record of academic excellence and complement of competent academic staff in all pharmaceuticals disciplines.  Critical expertise is available and full recognized and exploited in the provision of vital services to the public and private sector. This is realized through income generating activities, consultancies and community outreach services

In addition, the School is a key stakeholder and is effectively represented in institutional and national decision making fora and in formulation of policies that influence academic programmes, health policy and pharmaceutical care service delivery in public and private sectors. Expertise is available for highly specialized areas such as clinical trials, bioequivalence/bioavailability testing and cross-cutting research and innovation. Research and development with keen interest on natural products is entrenched. 

The School of Pharmacy is a leader in providing solutions to scientific and pharmaceutical problems in society through knowledge skills and management systems that are effective and efficient, based on good practices. Consequently the school continues to be a positive role model for other like minded Institutions. Through its ever growing networks and linkages and customized services the school is poised to deliver on its mandate nationally and internationally.

The site herein is just a glimpse of what is the School of Pharmacy.  Thanks for your interest in this site and I invite you to check other parts of the web site to learn more about our School. Get in touch for possible collaborations and/or services.
