The Faculty of Pharmacy at Beirut Arab University attained a five-year International Accreditation for its “Bachelor in Pharmacy Program” by the Canadian Council for Accreditation of Pharmacy Programs (CCAPP).
The CCAPP is the only accreditation body of pharmacy programs in Canada, and the accreditation granted to the Faculty of Pharmacy is of the highest rank available for programs outside Canada. This accreditation means that the Faculty has fulfilled all International Standards for quality education in the field of pharmacy, and that the graduates of the program are highly qualified to meet the changing requirements of the pharmaceutical profession, both in Lebanon and the region.
As stated by Prof. Abdallah Lakkani, Dean of the Faculty, this accreditation is the culmination of the efforts exerted by the faculty to develop its curricula, aiming at preparing pharmacists who are able to enhance the profession, both nationally and internationally. It is part of a constant endeavor to improve the education offered to pharmacy students at BAU.
Nine faculties out of the twelve at BAU have already attained International Academic Accreditation for their various programs.
