  The pharmacy education program is mainly aimed to train and develop competent professionals in pharmacy to serve the community. In the more than half a century of its establishment, the National Taiwan University became the first university in Taiwan to nurture high-level professionals in pharmacy, educating well over 3,000 students who are now devoting their efforts in various fields of studies in the country and abroad. Their endeavors contributed hugely to the health and well-beings of human kind. Moreover, the distinguished performance and accomplishments by these professionals had earned the respect and recognition of the society.

The NTU School of Pharmacy has always maintained a demanding and strict teaching program of high standard. The basic curriculum includes courses from basic sciences, biological, and medical sciences in addition to specialized courses in pharmacy. The curriculum was meticulously planned and arranged with a view to enable high performance from prospective graduates, not only for their devotion to healthcare of patients in various fields of practices in pharmacy, but also for working outside of their specialized field of studies as well. With rapid developments in medical and biological sciences, the field in pharmaceutical sciences also began to expand and involve more and more field of studies that also encompass knowledge in clinical pharmacy and practice. Furthermore, expansions of pharmacy services to clinical setting are gradually accepted as a prime mission of a pharmacist, thus making the traditional training of pharmacists quite inadequate for today's needs. Hence, in an effort to provide pharmacists with a higher level of professional knowledge in clinical services, the School of Pharmacy established its Graduate School of Clinical Pharmacy in 2000. The School of Pharmacy intends to train Professional Pharmacists of high standard to perform healthcare services in various areas, including clinical, ambulatory, and community services.

  In addition to its prime mission of training professional pharmacists, the School of Pharmacy also provides a diversified educational program that embraces the area of biopharmaceutical sciences. A number of NTU alumni have plunged into basic study in pharmaceutical sciences, and some had become research scientists in the Academia Sinica, while others had opted to serve in the government and become important policy makers in the field. Moreover, there had been some who pursued a career in research on basic medical sciences and run successful businesses in pharmaceutical industries in other parts of the world. The advancements in biotechnology had placed the development of local biopharmaceutical industry in the limelight. In response to this new trend, the government earmarked the biopharmaceuticals industry among the ten major developing industries of the future. The government hoped that after the rise of electronics industry, another boost from biopharmaceutical industry would extend the prosperity of Taiwan’s economy to another high level of development.
   The School of Pharmacy (NTUSP) was established in the year of 1953 under College of Medicine, National Taiwan University, with permission from Department of Education in Taiwan, when the first class of 32 undergraduate students was enrolled. At that time NTUSP is also the first public School of Pharmacy in Taiwan. To promote the graduate education programs, the Graduate Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences was established in 1970, starting first with the M.S. program followed by the Ph.D. program in 1983. In order to coordinate the teaching and research activities in the Graduate Institute, it was divided into three different sub-departments in 1989, including Pharmaceutical Chemistry (sub-department A), Pharmacognosy (sub-department B), and Pharmaceutics (sub-department C), and in 1993 followed by addition of fourth sub-department of Clinical Pharmacy, which was established with a view to train clinical pharmacists in pharmacy. In 2000 this fourth sub-department was further expanded and reorganized into the Institute of Clinical Pharmacy, which is endowed with a mission in education of professional clinical pharmacists. Professional graduates from this institute will be invaluable in dedicating their efforts to health care services and to research in medical sciences. In the same year, another fourth sub-department of Pharmaceutical Biotechnology was created to facilitate the education of pharmaceutical scientists in that emerging field. In order to coordinate more efficient teaching and research activities in the Graduate Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences, another reorganization was initiated in 2008, resulting in three new sub-departments, Drug Discovery (sub-department A), Pharmaceutical Technology (sub-department B) and Biopharmaceutics (sub-department C).

   In addition to regular undergraduate program, NTUSP also offers two other parallel course programs for those students of NTU who show interests in these courses. One is the Molecular Pharmaceutics Program which was set up in 2006 and the other is Chinese Herbal Medicine Program created in 2007.

   According to the field of specialty of faculty members, NTUSP offers various courses which are reflected in the teaching programs for undergraduate and graduate students. For the undergraduates program the courses offered include those in basic pharmacy (medicinal chemistry, pharmaceutics, pharmacognosy, pharmaceutical biotechnology, and pharmaceutical analysis), and those courses in clinical pharmacy. All these course offerings are intended for intensive training of professional pharmacists in Pharmacy Practice, as well as specialists in R&D of drug industry.

   Basically, the teaching faculties and facilities are quite adequate for the current implementation of teaching and research programs in the school; however, in the area of advanced research several facilities of higher technique are acutely needed which are currently under application. Regarding the educational programs the graduate school has been undergoing rapid expansion lately to include Institutes of Clinical Pharmacy as well as Pharmaceutical Biotechnology. We think such expansion would provide adequate researchers in pharmaceutical and clinical sciences, the need of them are keenly felt by our society. In the area of undergraduate education of pharmacist, the current four year teaching program is considered to be inadequate in the training of competent Clinical Pharmacists to meet the health care need of our society. To amend this shortcoming and also in recognizing the current world trend of education in clinical pharmacy, we are now in the process of reorganizing our undergraduate program by extending it to a six year teaching program for Clinical Pharmacists. The program is currently undergoing planning and application processes through the administrative authorities. Hopefully, the approval and implementation of this program would provide training ground for competent Clinical Pharmacist; such professional health-care givers would then provide ideal service in the hospitals, community pharmacies and other pharmaceutical fields in our society at large. The completion of this program would finally make our school the true School of Pharmacy of world standard in pharmacy education and research.

PHARMACEUTICAL CHEMISTRY、NEW DRUG DEVELOPMENT
Wenshan Botanical Garden
   The field of pharmacy is an extensive field of study, and technological researches of the different sub-disciplines are developing extensively. The development of new medicines mainly involves the design and composition of the drug molecules, particularly stressing specialization in chemistry, biochemistry and pharmacology. On the other hand, the pharmaceutical industry requires the integration of knowledge and skills in pharmacy and chemical engineering with industrial engineering. Biomedicine is field that delves into the internal dynamics of medicines, thus requires the combination of a background in mathematics and life sciences to see to the establishment of the right medication model and the evaluation of the therapeutic effects of medicines. Clinical Pharmacy mainly tackles professional pharmaceutical services; such as, establishing a medical consultation system, providing patients with the right medication know-how, and evaluating clinical medication. This field is highly related to management and liberal arts studies. As for pharmaceutical marketing and management, this field integrates sociology, management science, economics, and other humanities courses with social sciences.

   At present, the nation’s industries are aggressively conducting researches in the application of scientific procedures into Chinese herbal medicine; this pursuit falls under the sphere of Pharmacognosy and Natural Product Chemistry. The human resource training and education for the different sub-disciplines of pharmacy are a clear manifestation of the colorful and diversified world of pharmacy; regardless whether one chooses to pursue a career as a hospital or community pharmacist, a pharmacist in the pharmaceutical industry, or a career in new medicine research and development work. Having acquired a background in technology, humanities, and social sciences, a professional in the field of pharmacy carries the confidence and pride of one with unlimited horizon and thirst for learning.

   The government sub-classified the pharmaceuticals industry in March 1997. The move further emphasized and upgraded the significance and status of professional pharmacists. Unfortunately, there is a shortage in high-level professionals in pharmaceutical services and pharmaceutical processing technicians. Moreover, there is a high domestic demand for marketing and management professionals in this field, not to mention the application of different biotechnology and genetic engineering into pharmacy. These demands call for the ambitious and idealistic young people who are willing to explore a career in this field. In the United States, pharmacists are regarded as the most trustworthy group of professionals. Today, Taiwan is in the process of right timing for this opportunity. You are fortunately at the right place at the right time, so stop hesitating!
