The Faculty of Pharmacy, located at Tabriz University of Medical Scienses campus, is the second faculty of pharmacy to be established in Iran, dating back into 1948. It offers a variety of courses at undergraduate and postgraduate levels for full time and part time students.
The Faculty enjoys one of the highest graduate employment records of the university with prospects for careers in pharmacy and pharmaceutical industries. The Faculty has 12 large teaching laboratories, for the teaching of Pharmacy Practice, pharmaceutical technology, targeting of drugs, chemical synthesis, instrumental chemical analysis and spectroscopic studies, phytochemistry, pharmacology, and a laboratory for using computer aided learning packages. The comprehensive library in the faculty accommodates a large number of books, journals and databases.
The Faculty has a good record of research and development activities. Some of the principal areas of research at the faculty are drug targeting, pharmaceutical analysis, Quantitative Structure-Activity relationships (QSAR), extraction, authentication and screening of active ingredients, pharmacological investigations on actions and mechanisms of drug treatment and chemical synthesis of pharmacologically active compounds.

Pharmacy Doctorate (Pharm.D):
The programme is designed for a successful career in pharmacy. The graduates find employment as community pharmacists and clinical pharmacists. In addition, the pharmaceutical industry offers job opportunities in research and development, production, management and information.
The course provides quality education and training in all relevant pharmaceutical sciences. Several academic staff in universities all around Iran are graduates of this faculty. Over forty full-time members of academic staff who collectively exhibit a wide range of experience and expertise in pharmacy disciplines deliver the course. Doctorate of Pharmacy program is a five-year course and graduates become professionally qualified and register with The Pharmaceutical Society of Iran.
The curriculum includes various theoretical and practical modules and training (in pharmacy practice, pharmaceutical industry or hospital), and a research project must be completed in three semesters leading to the preparation of a Pharm.D thesis. The topics covered by the modules involve design, extraction and synthesis of active ingredients, formulation and drug delivery systems, testing and quality control, storage and use of drugs, therapeutics and pharmacology.
Candidates seeking admission must hold a high school diploma in science and successfully pass the National University Entrance Examination administered annually by the Ministry of Sciences, Researches and Technology.

Ph.D courses:
PhD studentships are available through the faculty in the field of pharmacognosy, pharmaceutics and pharmacology. The applicants should hold a Pharm.D degree with a minimum average grade of 75%. The curriculum involves forty-three credit units of which, twenty-three are theoretical and twenty are project work for the thesis. A PhD can be completed in 4-5 years.

Laboratory facilities:
The faculty actively participates in research and education, with chemistry, biochemistry, pharmaceutical, industrial pharmaceutics, toxicology and other research quality control laboratories. Laboratory facilities worth mentioning are: tableting and suppository-making devices, NMR200 and NMR60, several FTIR and UV spectophotometers, formulation of ointments, measurement of dermal absorption, Carl Fisher, dissolution tester, physiograph, analytical and preparative HPLC and Gc instruments and modern computers.

Library facilities
6500 volumes of books in English
2000 volumes of books in Persian
Journals in 60 headings
This library is connected to the Internet, Medline (since 1970), toxiline excerptamedica, IPA, Drugs and Pharmacology.

Funding to support the research activities is obtained from Research Council of the Tabriz University of Medical Sciences, Ministry of Health, and industrial companies. The departments of the faculty each have several research laboratories which house a full range of equipment including specialized items in addition to standard items such as HPLC, Gas chromatography, FTIR, NMR200, NMR60, dissolution testers, tabletting and particle sizing equipment physiograph and a computing laboratory which uses molecular modeling software to enhance the understanding and prediction of biological activity of drugs. The current research areas of the faculty have been listed within the sites of the departments of Medicinal Chemistry, Pharmaceutics, Pharmacology and Toxicology, and Pharmacognosy.
