The pharmacy education program is mainly aimed to train and develop capable professionals in pharmacy to do service to the community. In the nearly half a century of its establishment, the National Taiwan University became the first university in Taiwan to nurture high-level professionals in pharmacy, educating over 2,000 students that are now scattered in the different fields of medicinal studies in the country and abroad. The school was a huge contribution to the health and well-being of human kind. Moreover, the distinguished performance and accomplishments of these professionals had earned the respect and recognition of the society. The NTU School of Pharmacy has always maintained a demanding and strict course training program. Course curriculums from basic science courses and basic medical courses to specialized courses in pharmacy were all meticulously planned and arranged under the purpose of enabling students graduating from the courses to function well even in fields and practices outside their specialized studies in pharmacy, at the same time as they ensure the safe medication of patients. In pace with the leaping developments in medicine and medical technology, pharmaceutical application theories also began to involve more and more field of studies. Furthermore, expansions in pharmacist services are gradually becoming a trend, thus making the traditional training of pharmacists quite inadequate for today’s needs. Hence, in an effort to provide pharmacists a higher level of professional knowledge, the National Taiwan University established its Graduate School of Clinical Pharmacy in year 2000. NTU hopes to walk closer into sick rooms and penetrate deeper into the community to deliver services to patients.

In addition to the cultivation of professional pharmacists, the School of Pharmacy also provides a diversified education program. It is also the cradle of biopharmaceutical sciences. A number of NTU alumni have plunged into basic pharmaceutical research study work. Some had become researchers in the Academia Sinica, while some 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 medicine research and run successful businesses in other parts of the world. The advancements in biotechnology had placed biopharmaceuticals 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, Taiwan’s economy would get another boost that would extend the prosperity of Taiwan’s economy. A few years back, Pfizer launched “Viagra” into the market. Now, the little blue pill has a production volume greater than the production volume of Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co., Ltd. The figure sufficiently manifests the explosive growth of the biopharmaceutical industry; its vitality is not something to be ignored in the future.

As one caught in this key moment, perhaps it is already too late for you to start a career in electronics technology. But don’t worry, the biopharmaceuticals technology industry awaits you, and the School of Pharmacy is your best vehicle that could help you fulfill your future aspirations.
In the early period of Taiwan’s recovery, the pharmaceutical industry was an unproductive industry waiting to be developed. Following the transfer of the seat of government to Taiwan, the government established a complete medical system that had a dire need for professionals in the field of pharmaceutics. Thus, in August 1953, the Ministry of Education approved an application for the establishment of a School of Pharmacy filed by the National Taiwan University College of Medicine. That same year, the College of Medicine admitted its first batch of students, numbering 32, into the School of Pharmacy, the school being the earliest state school of pharmacy that Free China established in Taiwan.
Thereafter, the School of Pharmacy annually admitted around 40 students; the number grew to 60 per annum in 1969. Every year, the school admits around 40 students who qualified through the national college entrance examinations, most of which were the top ranking students who qualified for the A section in the earlier entrance exams or those who qualified for the C section in the recent entrance exams. In line with the overseas Chinese student policies of the government, the school admits around 20 overseas Chinese students from Hong Kong or Southeast Asian nations. However, after 1991, the number of overseas Chinese students had dropped to around 5 students.
In the 54 years of its history from its foundation to date (year 2006), the school had educated 50 batches of graduates totaling 2,462 graduates. Around 50% of these graduates pursued their careers here in Taiwan, and in the recent years, the ratio showed a trend of increasing. The other 50% of the graduates either pursued further education in the United States, Canada, and Europe or returned to the overseas homes. Among the graduates who pursued further studies in the related fields of pharmacy, over 200 had obtained doctorate degrees. Some of them returned to pursue their careers in Taiwan, while others took up residency abroad and gained respected international reputation as pharmaceutical experts and scholars. Some became educators and researchers, others held managerial positions in pharmaceutics companies, while, some became important policy makers in the government’s health department. Some have taken the path of commerce and now, ran successful businesses found or seen everywhere in Taiwan. Regardless of their chosen careers, may it be education, pharmaceutics related services, pharmaceutics manufacturing, positions in health and medical departments of the government, or business and pharmaceutics marketing, our department alumni who pursued their careers in Taiwan managed to achieve distinguished accomplishments in their chosen fields.
The strong demand for high-level professionals in pharmacy that year placed pharmacy education under an important limelight during the period. We also had to expand our faculty staff. In 1970, we established the Graduate Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences and began admitting students into our masters program. To date (2006), around 353 students have graduated from our graduate program. Subsequently, in 1983, the Graduate Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences started to offer doctorate courses; a total of 31 graduates have received their doctorate degrees to date. In an effort to enhance the sophistication of the institute’s teaching and research capacity, and foster the complementation of our course programs with those of other departments, starting in 1989, we further divided the field of pharmaceutical science into three principal sections; namely, the Medicinal Chemistry Section (A Section), the Biopharmaceutical Science Section (B Section), and the Pharmacy Section (C Section). In 1993, we created another new section, the Hospital Pharmacy Section (D Section) under the purpose of cultivating professionals in the field of Clinical Pharmacy. We continued to maintain a balanced development in the teaching and research aspects of each field of study.

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!
