The Faculty of Pharmacy, located on the Sant Joan d’Alacant Campus, was founded in 2003 as a core part of the Miguel Hernández University of Elche. Today, it is comprised of 90 faculty members and about 600 students. Its Bachelor’s in Pharmacy has been taught since 2009. This program strives to train specialists in all aspects related to drugs and medicine that enable its graduates to pursue careers in various areas of the health field, providing guidance about and distributing medications at both pharmacies and hospitals, in addition to other occupations related to biomedical activity.
The Faculty of Pharmacy organizes additional activities to adapt comprehensive student training to their future professional activity, focusing on practical aspects through seminars, workshops with professionals from various fields related to pharmacy education and the organization of student conferences where real problems associated with their future careers as pharmacists are posed. This division maintains interesting student exchange activity through the SICUE and ERASMUS programs that regularly allow many students to complement their training at other universities both within and outside Spain.
