Article of the week : Overview of the Faculty



Welcome to the web page of the Faculty of Pharmacy, Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Nigeria. The purpose of these web pages is to provide information regarding the development and implementation of our programme. I hope you enjoy browsing through the web site to find out more about us.

Founded in 1962 as a Department of Pharmacy within the Faculty of Science, it is the premier institution to provide pharmacy education in Nigeria. A very large percent of Nigerian pharmacists working in the country and abroad are graduates of this University (formerly called University of Ife). With the demand of this noble profession coupled with perception of its tremendous contribution to our society, the department was upgraded to a full-fledged Faculty in 1969, with four main departments: Pharmaceutical Chemistry, Pharmacology, Pharmacognosy, and Pharmaceutics.
