The Department of Clinical Pharmacy and Pharmacy Practice coordinates all courses related to clinical pharmacy, pharmacy practice, ethics and pharmacy law, pharmacy management, pharmacoecomonics, entrepreneurship, and pharmacy clinical clerkships among others. These courses constitute the core of pharmacy programmes taught at diploma and bachelors level in the School of Pharmacy. The Department is mandated to develop new and innovative programmes in these sub-specialties and currently is developing a Master of Pharmacy in Clinical Pharmacy and Biopharmaceutics which is expected to be launched by the end of 2020 after approval by the Pharmacy Council of the Pharmaceutical Society of Uganda (PSU) and the National Council for Higher Education (NCHE). The department works closely with the pharmacy and all clinical departments of the teaching hospital, KIUTH, where our students undertake the bulk of their clinical pharmacy rotations, clerkships and pharmacy practice training including dispensing and records management.
The department is in the process of establishing a fully equipped skills lab to enable the students hone their clinical pharmacy and pharmacy practice skills before they are deployed to the hospital pharmacies and wards.
