School of Pharmacology


Our School of Pharmacology was created simultaneously when the university was founded, on April 21st, 1966, to offer specialized studies of higher education in pharmacology, and is the oldest school of pharmacology belonging to a private university.

Our pharmacology program is the most prestigious of all Dominican universities, as demonstrated by the professional success of our graduates and our high rate of their insertion into the labor market both nationally and internationally.

The pharmacology program´s curriculum consists of 12 semesters to be taken over 4 years (3 per year), which are organized as follows: Basic Cycle of 5 semesters and one professional cycle of 7 semesters. This program contains elective courses as well as tutored practice performed in the work areas of their future profession, and an internship of a minimum of 400 hours in the national pharmaceutical industry, which allows the student to acquire the experience and skills necessary to compete successfully in the labor market.

During the Basic Pharmacology Cycle, our students use the laboratories installed on our campus. In the case of the professional cycle, the School of Pharmacology has laboratories equipped to practice subjects such as Bromatology, Pharmaceutical Technology, Pharmaco-Botany, Pharmacognosia, and Toxicology. In the case of the practice of Anatomy, Physiology, and Pharmacology, they use the installations of the Anatomy Institute and the Institute of Physiological Sciences and Experimental Medicine, respectively.
