Accra, Sept. 24, GNA – The National Council for
Tertiary Education (NCTE) and National Accreditation Board (NAB) Monday said the
six-year Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D) programme being run by the Kwame Nkrumah
University of Science and Technology is a first degree professional programme
and not a postgraduate degree.

A statement issued the NCTE in Accra, and
copied to the Ghana News Agency, said the classification of the Programme was just
like that of the Doctor of Optometry and Doctor of Medical Laboratory Science
(MLS.D) and should be treated as such.

The NCTE and NAB, in 2016, approved the introduction
of the Programme on the recommendations of the Pharmacy Council of Ghana, the
Ministry of Health and the West Africa Health Organization (WAHO), the
statement said.

The programme aims at harmonising the training
of Pharmacists internationally and across the West Africa Region as well as to
enhance the clinical competence of Pharmacists in Ghana.

The Pharm. D. programme replaced the previous
four-year Bachelor of Pharmacy programme run in the country.
