The College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences (COPHS) at Ajman University (AU) was founded in the academic year 1996/1997 to be the first college offered B.Pharm program for both genders in UAE. The establishment of COPHS was essential to meet the big demand for pharmacists to work in hospitals and community pharmacies and to provide the manpower for the increasing number of private pharmacies and growing pharmaceutical industry in the UAE and the region. The college Bachelor of Pharmacy program has been granted International Certification by the US-based Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) since June 2018, to be one of 11 non-American programs to earn ACPE certification.
Over the years, COPHS has progressed and pioneered the offering of MScPharm program in the UAE. This development proves that COPHS is keen to fulfil its role in the advancement of the pharmacy profession, the College has carried out a needs assessment study for offering MSc.Pharm. degree program in pharmaceutical sciences. The study indicated a strong need and commitment among pharmacy graduates in the UAE and the region for a postgraduate pharmacy program especially in clinical pharmacy. This strong interest arose from the fact that the program would be the first to be offered in the Gulf Region.
