About the Course:

Man has always used external materials to help prevent, cure, or alleviate the symptoms of disease. In fact, Gregory Higby of the American Institute of the History of Pharmacy has written that, "...the very concept of influencing bodily functions via an outside force must be considered one of humanity's greatest advances."

Since its independent origins in ancient Arabic civilizations, pharmacy has evolved from a craft dedicated to the compounding of drugs to a profession focusing on helping patients get the best outcomes from medication therapies.

Classes will commence from 23rd January 2014.
