The programme, which prepares future pharmacists for professional and research activity, is based on in-depth knowledge and ethical values. Not only does it prepare the graduates for dispensing medicines but also for participating in healthcare provision and health promotion.

On completion of the work placement, the graduates are awarded a master’s diploma in pharmacy which entitles them to obtain the right to practice the profession from an appropriate pharmaceutical chamber. Receiving the diploma opens a broad range of opportunities to work in pharmacies in Poland and other countries of the European Union without the necessity to nostrify the diplomas.
