About

The Clinical Pharmacy program of the An-Najah National University is offered for pharmacists who hold the bachelor degree in pharmacy and who wish to expand their experience in Clinical Pharmacy. 

Overview

The Clinical Pharmacy program of the An-Najah National University involves both theoretical courses ‎during the two years and practical training in the second year at the university's hospital and governmental hospitals in ‎Palestine. While developing the much-needed scientific background ‎of students, the Clinical Pharmacy program emphasizes developing ‎students’ clinical skills and improves their role through ‎pharmaceutical care skills development. 

Through the courses ‎obtained in this program, pharmacists will be able to acquire the ‎clinical skills needed to assume the role of clinical pharmacists. In ‎addition, they will learn necessary clinical information needed to ‎evaluate common clinical cases, in out-patient, hospital and in ‎community pharmacy.

Teaching and Learning

Clinical Pharmacy program depends mainly on classic and active ‎lectures. In addition, clinical case study and small group discussion ‎sessions have been applied in order to apply the knowledge on a real ‎case, to answer the questions of students and evaluate their ‎knowledge, to encourage students to discuss, analyze and criticize data ‎and other works. Furthermore, seminars and projects are needed ‎from students to teach them how to examine the references and ‎periodicals. 

On the other hand, the program involves some interactive ‎learning and online tutorials that are designed in a special way. The ‎courses offer some online instructive and didactic lectures. In addition ‎to course work, this master program includes clinical clerkships to ‎further extend the understanding of clinical pharmacy practice within a ‎multidisciplinary team and the integration of therapeutics into patient ‎centered care.

Career Opportunities

Some of the numerous and diverse career options available to ‎Clinical Pharmacy graduates: ‎

  • Clinic Pharmacy Practice.
  • Community Pharmacy.
  • Hospital Pharmacy.
  • Pharmacy Education.

  • Insurance Agencies.

Clinical pharmacists can work in hospitals, clinics, and pharmacies ‎where they advise for the most appropriate, effective and safest ‎medication and prescribe the necessary over-the-counter drugs ‎after evaluating the unique needs of their patients. Clinical ‎pharmacists then observe the patients' recovery and make sure the ‎medication is working as expected, making changes if there are any ‎unexpected drug interactions or severe side effects.‎

Clinical Pharmacy graduates can join pharmacy faculties, to teach ‎clinical pharmacy and to conduct research on optimization of drug ‎therapies and the costs of health care.
